Hello, I am a solicitor with 20 years experience. I wiil try to answer this for you. 24 years ago would make the start date of your tenancy 1992. The status of your tenancy will probably depend on whether you were served with a Section 20 notice at the outset of that tenancy. If not you will be an assured tenant with a great deal of security of tenure, If you were then you will probably be an assured shorthold tenant with very little. Do yo know if one was served. Is there a written tenancy agreement?
