The Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) is the most common tenancy agreement in the UK if you are renting from a private landlord or letting agent.
ASTs usually have a fixed term of anywhere from six to twelve months, although it is possible to agree on a shorter or longer rental period.
One of the main features of an AST is that the landlord can evict the tenant without any reason, if they follow the correct eviction procedure.
This includes serving notice on the tenant and obtaining an eviction order from the court, if necessary.
However, it should be noted that tenants have certain rights under AST agreements, including the right to know the name and address of their landlord.
At the end of a fixed-term AST agreement, landlords and tenants can either agree to a new fixed-term contract or continue a rolling monthly basis.
Either way, it is important to ensure that all terms and conditions are clearly stated in the contract to avoid any misunderstandings further down the line.
