An Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) is a tenancy that gives a tenant the legal right to live in a property for a period of time. Such tenancies are usually granted for a set period of six months and come in different types.
Assured Shorthold Tenants can be evicted more easily than most other housing association tenants. Rules governing these types of tenancies are different to longer term options.
