      Hi, the max tenancy period through SPEEDHOME is 12 months which will help tenant from early terminations fees in the future should they have any life plans changes. If you’re looking to rent more than 12 months, you can renew your tenancy agreement as per usual on SPEEDHOME and still enjoy zero deposit!
