AST An assured shorthold tenancy agreement (AST) allows a landlord to let out a
property to a tenant while retaining the right to repossess the property at the end of the
term of the tenancy. However, the landlord will need to give the tenant at least two months’
notice of any reoccupation. If the landlord and tenant wish to extend the original period of
the tenancy, a new agreement should be created.
All AST agreements must now have as an addition the prescribed information for tenants,
which is essentially a form detailing how much deposit has been paid, which government
scheme it is protected by and more. Here at Letu, we can draw up your
tenancy agreement for you using our unique ‘AST builder’, which will include all the
prescribed information you need to provide along with the ‘how to rent guide’ for tenants,
making sure you are fully compliant with the law. See [insert link] for the tenants’ ‘how to rent
