Types of Residential Tenancies

The majority of tenancies are Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements.  This means that you as the landlord may be able to serve a Section 21 Notice, upon your tenant to bring the tenancy to an end anytime after 6 months have elapsed.  This is irrespective of whether your tenant has been a good tenant and paid the rent on time, or whether they have been a bad tenant.  The service of an appropriate Notice will lead to a mandatory ground for possession. 

The Periodic Tenancy.  After 6 months the Assured Shorthold Tenancy if not renewed will become a Periodic Tenancy.  A Periodic Tenancy is a tenancy which runs from month to month, or week to week, depending upon when the rent is payable.  It is created by the tenant simply continuing to occupy the property and you accepting the rental payments. 

The Fixed Term Tenancy.  This may for example be for one year. The Section 21 Notice cannot be used to bring this tenancy to an end before the end of the fixed term
