Housing law: setting up an Assured Shorthold Tenancy in Wales


Assured Shorthold Tenancies (“ASTs”) are the most usual types of tenancy that are granted.  They are popular with landlords given that they can be brought to an end relatively easier than many other types of tenancy.

This guide sets out the various steps and formalities that are required to successfully grant an AST for properties in Wales, and there is a checklist in the schedule of this document to help guide you.

For setting up ASTs for properties in England, please see business guide “Housing Law: setting up an assured shorthold tenancy in England”.
