    Tenancy renewal form 10th Sep 17 at 4:18 PM
    I signed a tenancy renewal form with the letting agent which requested my intention to enter into a new rental agreement. However, I have now changed my mind. Is this signed renewal form legally binding and treated as though I've actually signed the new tenancy agreement even though I have yet do so? Thanks.

    Probably. It sounds like an offer of a new contract which you accepted.

    What exactly did it say?

    And when does your current tenancy expire?

    (Oh, and are you in Eng? Wales?........?

    Hi. Thanks for the reply. It was a form which asked me to tick what type of contract I wish to enter into and then sign it. Options included vacating property or 6 month contract with or without break clause. Current contract ends in 2 month's time. In England. Thanks.

    Since more than one option is offered, then that does not appear to be a specific offer of a contract. It appears to be no more than a request for information regarding your preference.

    If you don't want to sign a new fixed term of say 6 or 12 months then tell the agents that.
    If you have already signed a form then follow up your phone call with an email so they can't say you never informed them that you wish to go onto a periodic tenancy.
    Maybe even a letter with pen and paper and proof of posting
