FAQs
What is litigation?
Litigation is the formal process of having a dispute resolved by the Court. There are various different Courts dealing with different kinds of dispute. Litigation should generally be regarded as a last resort to be relied upon only if other attempts to resolve a dispute have failed.
What is the minimum term an assured shorthold tenancy can be granted for?
The minimum term for an assured shorthold tenancy is 6 months. A landlord cannot grant a lesser term than 6 months. There is no upper limit so an assured shorthold tenancy can be granted for a number of years if that is what both parties want.
I don’t have a written tenancy agreement.  Has a tenancy still been created?
Yes. There is no requirement for a tenancy agreement to be in writing. It assists if the tenancy agreement is in writing as then the landlord and the tenant both know the terms by which they are bound however, a tenancy can be created through the parties conduct which can include having exclusive occupation of the property and the payment of rent.
What type of tenancy will be created?
Unless stated otherwise all tenancies entered into after the 28th February 1997 are automatically deemed assured shorthold tenancies.
