Assured shorthold tenancy

This is the formal name for the standard tenancy type in England and Wales. There is no minimum length of contract, but it is typically six months or more.

The contract gives the tenant some protection from eviction, and although the landlord can give notice at any time, in practice there is a minimum notice period of two months.
