Assured Shorthold Tenancies

An assured short hold tenancy (AST) is the most common form of tenancy based on a privately rented property with a tenancy beginning after 15th January 1989.

Normally lasting either 6 or 12 months, AST's protect the tenants deposit and protect them from rent increases within the terms of the contract (unless otherwise stated).

It is therefore crucial that you execute a formal contract and inventory including details of maintenance and repair to your tenant to protect both of your rights for the duration of the contract.
