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:
the dwellinghouse must be let as a separate dwelling1;
the tenant or, if there are joint tenants, each of the joint tenants, must be individuals2; and
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
