2. Are you L, L's Letting Agent, or T?
3. What type of property is it: residential or commercial?
4. If it's residential, is the existing letting an AST/SAT or outside the Housing Act 1988?
5. Who wants that a new fixed term be granted: L or T?

This is how my letting agent does renewals. They are a big national chain, and ARLA members, so I presume they know what they're doing (most of the time ;)).

1. It looks OK, although the 'whereby' is a bit archaic (and is it "Tenant" or "Tenants"?)

2. As it's a new letting:
a. any deposit will needs reprotecting; and
b. any s.21 Notice already served will cease to be operable.

3. On the other hand, it's a renewal [a 'replacement tenancy' under s.5(5)], so the 'six-month' rule won't apply if:
a. L/T/premises are unchanged; and
b. the old letting ran for at least six months.
