What is an AST?

To start the tenancy on a legal footing , you’ll need an up-to-date contract signed by all parties: landlord, tenants, estate agents and guarantors. Most rental contracts in the UK are called Assured Shorthold Tenancies (AST).

Assured Shorthold Tenancies were introduced by the Housing Act 1988. Despite being a legal document , not all ASTs are the same. Most tenancy agreements tend to look similar, there can be a lot of variation in language and structure.
