Type of Tenancy Agreement
The Tenancy Agreement that you will be required to sign is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement. This is a legally binding document and it is therefore advised that you read the document thoroughly before signing and ask any questions regarding parts of it you may not understand. You may wish to take advice from the local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or a Solicitor.
An Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement is guaranteed on both sides for a fixed term of six months. After the six month period the tenancy becomes a Statutory Periodic Tenancy, which then allows the tenant to give one month’s notice in writing from the anniversary of the start date of the tenancy or the landlord to give two months notice requiring possession of the property.
