These tips are for landlords who have let or who intend to let a property on an assured shorthold tenancy.
Your tenant is likely to have an assured shorthold tenancy if:
- you are a private landlord
- the tenancy began on or after 28 February 1997
- the house or flat is let as separate accommodation and is your tenant’s main home
If you are not sure what sort of tenancy your tenant has, see the sources of further information at the bottom of the leaflet.
