An Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) Agreement is a contract between a landlord and a tenant that offers both parties legal protection as long as they follow the terms in the agreement.

Here at Howsy.com we always advise tenants and landlords to have a current AST agreement in place as it will contain the following:

  • the start date of the tenancy agreement
  • the end date of the tenancy agreement
  • the use of the property and any restrictions of use
  • the amount of deposit
  • the rent amount and payment date

It covers what the tenant is responsible for – such as keeping the house tidy, fixtures and fittings in good working order.

As long as the tenant abides by the terms in the AST – the landlord is bound to provide a safe and habitable property, and if the property does become uninhabitable to provide alternative accomodation if the rent is still being collected.
