What happens when you send a rental contract as a Word document for the tenants to sign?
Well, the tenants might take the cake!
In a story that has gone viral, the tenants added a clause stipulating that the landlord give each of them a free birthday cake, adding “Vanilla cake is not acceptable”.
The landlord did not notice the insertion of the extra clause and signed the document.
It is not known where the story originated from – but it does prove that draft tenancy agreements should be sent as uneditable pdfs.
