No matter how many times a fixed term assured shorthold tenancy is renewed to the same tenants, or however long it continues in force as statutory periodic under Section 5 of the Housing Act 1988, no extra rights or greater security of tenure will be acquired by the tenant, than when the tenancy began, if this was after 14th January 1989. All tenants living in property prior to 15th January 1989 will be protected tenants under the Rent Act 1977, and will have security of tenure. If a tenant entered into an assured shorthold tenancy agreement between 15th January 1989 and 28th February 1997, the security of tenure would depend on the kind of notice served on him before his tenancy of the property began. Security of tenure of assured shorthold tenancies created since 28th February 1997 does not change part way through the tenancy, no matter how long that tenancy might be.
