409 Assured tenancy

An assured tenancy under the Housing Act 1988 is nothing whatsoever to do with the assured tenancy introduced by the Housing Act 1980. The Housing Act 1988 Section 1 contains three prerequisites for the creation of an assured tenancy:

  1. 409.1

        the dwellinghouse must be let as a separate dwelling1;

  2. 409.2

        the tenant or, if there are joint tenants, each of the joint tenants, must be individuals2; and

  3. 409.3

        the tenant or, if there are joint tenants, at least one of them, must occupy the dwellinghouse as his or her only or principal home3.

A tenancy cannot be protected
