What kind of tenancy do I have?

In order to know your rights as a tenant, you need to know what kind of tenancy agreement you have. There are several different types of tenancy, but our quick and easy tenancy checker can help you to work out which one you are likely to have.

Remember, you may not necessarily have the type of tenancy that is stated on your tenancy agreement. It's unlikely that your landlord is an expert in housing law, so they may have got your tenancy type wrong.

We can't guarantee that the results of the tenancy checker will be 100 per cent accurate, so if you're not sure, contact an adviser at a Shelter advice centre or Citizens Advice.
