An assured shorthold tenancy agreement (also known as an AST) allows a landlord to let a property to a tenant. The term of an assured shorthold tenancy agreement is usually 6 or 12 months and will usually convert to a rolling periodic tenancy at the end of the initial term.

A bedsit is a form of accommodation made up of a single unit in a property with shared facilities. A bedsit can be part of a HMO if the property has 3 or more tenants who make up more than one household. The landlord will have additional responsibilities including making sure the rooms are a certain size if the property is classed as a HMO. In this case, depending on where the property is located the landlord might need a licence from the local council.

A tenancy agreement must state if the landlord has a superior landlord or not. This is a person or company the landlord has a superior lease with. The landlord must also have the permission from the superior landlord to let the property to a tenant in the first place.

A bedsit in a property which is not classed as a HMO might require a lodger licence agreement if the landlord is living in the same property and it is their main home. In this case, the occupier of the bedsit will classified as a lodger and will not have exclusive possession of their bedsit. The notice requirements will also be different.
