Interested in renting one of our homes but not sure where to start with different tenancy types?
The options below may apply to the home you are interested in renting. If you need further clarification, you can give us a call or submit an enquiry via Contact Us.
Starter Tenancy / Assured Shorthold Tenancy
This is a probationary tenancy which runs for the first 12 months of a tenancy, and will convert to an assured tenancy on the first anniversary of the tenancy, providing that legal action has not been taken to end the tenancy or extend the probationary period. We will also issue Assured Shorthold Tenancies for your Rent to Homebuy products.
Assured / Secure Tenancy
This is the tenancy that customers will convert to if they 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 in which we manage for another landlord or agency which we enter into an agreement for a specific period of time. This type of tenancy enables us to end the 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 for customers who are under the age of 18. This is because in law someone under 18 cannot hold a legal interest in land. A Trustee will hold the legal estate for the customer until the customer reaches 18 years old. On the customer's 18 birthday, the Trustee will automatically fall away and the legal estate will become that of the customer.
Protected Assured Tenancy
This tenancy type is held by customers who have transferred to Group companies under a Large Scale Voluntary Transfer and enjoy preserved rights as existed with the previous Tenancy Agreement. These are no longer issued, but are in existence.
