Error/Change Tenancy Agreement

Comments

I have issued a tenancy agreement to three of my tenants that has an error in it.

I normally ask for rent payments monthly dated the day they moved in i.e. move in 23rd then payments due on 23rd of each month. However I have just noticed that at the bottom of the front page it says 'rent payments are due on the first of every month in advance'.

Can I write to the tenats and clarify that payments are to be made on their moving in date and not the first of each month? Will this be okay? Do I need confirmation in writing they agree? Or do I need to issue new tenancy agreements?

One tenant is causing problems so will the agreement come under scrutiny in court. He is offically two months in arrears from his move in date but he states he has more weeks to go as he can pay on the 1st. He is actually even more in arrears as the agreemnt states IN ADVANCE but this is causing problems.

What should i do?

Thank you James
