How Does It Work?
This is our standard Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement template. It is designed to be used when, as a landlord, you need to put in place a tenancy agreement for the letting of residential property. It is ideal for lettings on a relatively long-term basis (or potential long-term basis), but is suitable for both short term and long term letting of residential property. The “assured shorthold” is the most common basis for such a tenancy. This type of tenancy agreement puts in place a robust and detailed agreement that can be customised to suit your individual requirements.
The template has been drafted by David, our co-founder and lawyer of more than twenty years. This ensures that you can rely on the document being up-to-date and legally comprehensive. Our detailed guidance notes (free with the template) offer a clause-by-clause explanation of the document and make producing the final draft quick and easy for you. A copy of the guidance notes are available here: guide to this assured shorthold tenancy agreement.

An Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement is a legally binding document for a tenant and landlord to sign. This document is for a specific type of tenancy. An assured shorthold tenancy is the most common type of residential tenancy agreement used in England and Wales in which a tenant has the right to stay in a property for a certain period of time, as long as they pay the rent and abide by the terms of the tenancy agreement. The Assured Shorthold Tenancy typically lasts for six months and up to a year, during which time the landlord cannot evict the tenant without proper cause. After that, the tenancy can roll on from month to month so long as the tenant continues to pay the rent and comply with the terms of the tenancy. If the landlord wants to bring the tenancy to an end, he will have to serve the correct notices and obtain an eviction order from court.
The tenancy agreement not only comes with a guide to help you fill it out, but also some helpful notices at the start of the agreement on how to deal with it and other related issues, such as holding the deposit in an approved scheme.
