Eviction from a short assured tenancy

If you rent from a private landlord and have a short assured tenancy, you can only be evicted if your landlord follows the correct procedures. This section explains the things such as serving a notice to quit and other procedures that landlords must follow before ending a short assured tenancy early or for evicting short assured tenants at any time. The procedure is different if they want to evict you during your tenancy, or at the end of your tenancy.
