Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement (AST)

Note: Some information may not apply due to COVID-19.

Assured Shorthold Tenancies are the most common form of rental in the UK when the landlord doesn't live in the property - it's the default agreement if you don't specify another type when letting your property. An Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement allows the landlord or tenant to end the tenancy after an initial six month period, by giving notice to quit.

If you want to let a house or flat these legally-binding documents are all you need to put it in writing. They can be used to create the standard type of letting known as an 'Assured Shorthold Tenancy'. These tenancy agreements have been endorsed by the NLA (National Landlords Association).

The SpareRoom Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement has been solicitor approved and is suitable for landlords in England & Wales. It's available for just £7.50 for the PDF download version. We also have room only AST tenancy agreements.
