This chapter considers the provisions of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, Part II, which provides security of tenure for the majority of business tenants by giving them a statutory right to renew their lease or tenancy. It explains the need for ‘tenancy’; need for ‘occupation’; need for ‘the purposes of a business’; key methods of termination under the Act; section 40 notices; interim rent applications; landlord’s statutory grounds of opposition; tenant’s right to compensation; and the terms of the new tenancy.
