Your tenancy agreement

About your tenancy agreement

Your tenancy agreement is a legal contract that sets out certain terms and conditions.

It tells you how much rent you’ll pay, what we are responsible for, what you are responsible for and how long your tenancy will last.

The type of tenancy you have will be outlined in your tenancy agreement. Below are examples of the types of tenancy we offer.

Assured shorthold tenancy

Assured shorthold tenancies are given to most new tenants for a probationary period of 12 to 18 months. After this time, unless you have breached the terms of your tenancy agreement, the tenancy can be extended or you may be switched to an assured tenancy or a fixed term tenancy.

Assured tenancy

An assured tenancy has no fixed end date and can only be ended if you breach the terms of your tenancy agreement.

Fixed term tenancy

These tenancies are usually fixed for a period of 5 years. We may use a fixed term tenancy for a new build property or where the long term future of a property is uncertain.
