You have a secure short-term rent (AST) if you rent out from a private landlord, if you started your rent after February 28, 1997, if your landlord does not reside in your home, your home/apartment/room is your main house and is rented as separate accommodation. Check your rental agreement or visit the AST page on the Gov.uk website for more information. If your lease has been opened or extended on October 1, 2015, your landlord must also provide you with an updated copy of the rental guide. A tenancy agreement is a contract between you and your tenant. The most common form of rental is an AST. Most new leases are automatically this type.

Gov.uk explains how to terminate your lease and what procedures your landlord must follow to terminate your lease or distribute you. If you want to leave, you can usually terminate your lease by undressing the keys until the end of the fixed term and returning. Check your contract to see if you have to say you`re leaving. The standard rental contract is provided free of charge and can be completed online or downloaded and carried out manually. If the agreement is made online, it must be printed for the wet signature.
