What is an AST Agreement?

AST stands for Assured Shorthold Tenancy and is the most common type of rental contract. Your tenancy agreement will create a legally binding contract between landlord and tenant that sets out the rules, responsibilities and duties of both parties during the tenancy.

Why do I Need a Tenancy Agreement?

Your tenancy agreement is the single most important document involved in renting out your property. Without a written tenancy agreement, you may be unable to evict your tenants, struggle to collect rent arrears or find yourself in a tricky situation with the courts should a dispute arise. An AST agreement is the best way to protect your interests and your property.
