How to renew a tenancy

A tenancy is about to end and you need to renew it. In Lofti you can renew it in just a few clicks. You only have to follow very few steps:

  1. The notification
  2. The renewal

The notification

45 days before the end of a tenancy, the tenant will receive an email notification asking them if they want to renew their tenancy with you. We collect the result and inform you about their choices.


Here below is a sample of the email that the tenant will receive:

You now just need to hit the Renew Tenancy button to start the renewal process.

During this renewal process, we gather all the details about the current tenancy and duplicate everything. You, then, will be able to change the following details:

  • Tenancy terms (start date, end date, term)
  • Monthly rent
  • Break clause

After modifying the details (if needed) you can either generate the new tenancy agreement or upload a signed agreement.

As soon as the document is signed by all parties or uploaded you will be able to add the deposit protection details.

Note, when a tenancy is renewed we add the tenancy history to help you monitor the evolution of the terms and rent for this specific tenant. To see the full history of the tenancy you just need to reach the ‘History’ tab.
