A contractual tenancy is often also known as a common-law tenancy. This type of tenancy is used in certain circumstances where a tenancy cannot be an assured shorthold tenancy. Examples include:

  • all tenants are NOT individuals (e.g. company let)
  • the dwelling is NOT to be the tenants only or principal home
  • the rent exceeds £100k per annum.
