Non-assured or assured shorthold tenancies[ edit ] Tenancies entered into before the commencement of the Act on 15 January An exception to this are assured tenancies which are converted from being regulated by the Housing Act except if granted by approved bodies under ss of the Housing Act before 15 January , and before that date the tenant made an application to the court under section 24 of the Landlord and Tenant Act for the grant of a new tenancy , and on 15 January the Act tenancy is continuing by virtue of that section or of any provision of Part IV of the said Act of Tenancies eligible to be protected business tenancies contracted out business tenancies or partly let for business use are ineligible to be assured tenancies. Although this provision stipulates "occupation" this need not be continuous, if a mere temporary absence this will still be capable of being an assured tenancy. It may be that the tenant has not by eviction ceased to live in a tenancy in which case they are no longer occupying the dwelling as their principal home. Here the tenant thus loses security of tenure. If the tenancy is periodic, it will only come to an end either by an order of the court or by surrender by the tenant.
