What type of tenancy is this?
I have a letter signed by me as the only piece of paper that exchanged hands. Its copied below. Is this a "implied assured shorthold tenancy". My tenants are on DSS but have not paid over any rents for two months. Plus they are damaging the property and I really need a repossession. I need to use accelerated possession order but am doubtful if I qualify due to typoe of tenancy and that I have not deposited the deposit in any scheme as I thoughjt this is not an assured shorthold tenancy. Any advise on quick fix for possession?
copy of the only tenancy letter issued and tenants have not signed anything:
"In accordance with the terms of our agreement, I am writing to confirm your status as a tenant renting Three Bedroom self contained Flat at the above address from 4th of June 2009. It includes free residents parking for your car.
