Tenancy At Will

  • This is nothing to do with wills
  • This is normally a short term tenancy with no fixed duration agreed by the landlord as a License (but not a lease or AST).
  • The tenant is only entitled to remain only as long as the landlord permits.
  • Either party can end the tenancy at short notice.
  • Examples might include temporary farm workers harvesting crops.
  • Very similar to a license but a little more formal with a drafted tenancy stating that it is merely a tenancy at will or occasionally referred to as an Estate At Will.
