What is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement for student properties?

This is the most common type of tenancy if you rent from a private landlord or letting agency. They are usually a fixed term of 6 or 12 months.

It is common for 12 month tenancies to be in place for student properties, July-June, in line with the student letting cycle here in Leeds. This is the legally binding document you would sign when signing up for a property.
