Assured Shorthold Tenancies (AST)

An AST is the most common type of tenancy if you rent from a private landlord or letting agent.

You usually have an AST if:

- You do not share any accommodation with your landlord and they live elsewhere
- The rent is less than £100,000 a year
- The tenant is an individual and is using the property as their main home
Common Law Tenancies

A tenancy would be created as a NHA if the rent is over £100,000 a year, or where it is not the tenant’s main home.

Company tenancies are also NHA’s.

A company let is when a company takes on a residential tenancy agreement as the tenant, rather than an individual. The tenancy will be in the company Name. The company employee will live in the property.
