What is it?

Assured Tenancy Agreements and Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements are in themselves very similar looking documents. However, there are a couple of significant differences, primarily to do with the length of the tenancy and the protection granted to the tenant.

Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements are usually used with the intention of granting a tenancy for a short period, usually 6 to 12 months. They should not be used if you are intending to create an agreement in excess of 3 years.

Today, the Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement is the most commonly used tenancy agreement and the one automatically created if the parties do not state what type of tenancy they wish to create. Importantly, an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement allows either the landlord or tenant to end the tenancy after the initial six-month period (or after the agreed full length of the tenancy if this is longer) by simply serving upon the other party the required possession notice.
