Short assured tenants
Most tenancies are 'short assured' – this means they last a fixed length of time (at least six months).
If you want your tenant to leave at the end of a short assured tenancy, they have to do so and you don't have to give a reason.
However, you still have to give your tenant:
- a 'notice to quit'
- at least two months' notice in writing that you want the property back – this is called a section 33 notice
