- You are a private landlord
- The tenancy started on (or after) 28th February 1997
- The dwelling is let as a separate accommodation and is the tenant’s main residence.
Tenancy agreements are not determined by the landlord or agent, but by how the property is occupied. If you are unsure about what type of tenancy agreement you have or should use, refer to Tenancy agreements – GOV.UK for specialist advice. The Government have also produced a model AST along with guidance which can be used by private landlords.
