When you let your property to a tenant, the tenancy is usually an assured shorthold tenancy (unless you agree otherwise in writing or it is outside the assured tenancy legislation). This means that:
- you have a guaranteed right to get your home back after 6 months - if you need to
- you can charge a market rent
- you can get your home back if your tenant owes you at least 2 months’ or 8 weeks’ rent
- tenants causing a nuisance to local people can be evicted
