Are you interested in renting one of our homes, but not sure where to start with different tenancy types?
Starter Tenancy/Assured Shorthold Tenancy
This is a probationary tenancy, which runs for 12 months. After this time, it converts to an assured tenancy, providing that no legal action has been taken against you to end your tenancy or extend the probationary period. We will also issue Assured Shorthold Tenancies for your Rent to Homebuy products.
This is the tenancy that you will convert to if you have successfully completed the 12-month probationary Starter Tenancy/Assured Shorthold Tenancy.
Assured Shorthold Tenancy
We would use this type of tenancy, for example, for homes that we manage for another landlord or agency under an agreement for a specific period of time. This type of tenancy enables us to end your tenancy by obtaining a court order for possession on one of the grounds listed in Schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988.
Equitable Assured Shorthold Tenancy
We would use this tenancy if you are under the age of 18. This is because the law states that someone under 18 cannot hold a legal interest in land. A Trustee will hold the legal estate for you until your 18th birthday, when the legal estate will legally become yours.
Protected Assured Tenancy
You have this tenancy if you have transferred to one of the Group companies under a Large Scale Voluntary Transfer and are entitled to the preserved rights which existed with the previous Tenancy Agreement. These are no longer issued, but are still in existence.
