The legal position with regard to the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954.
We acknowledged that with a renewable lease
is that the tenant has the right to renew the lease at the end of the
contractual term. However, there are certain exceptions to this rule and
these can be summarised as follows: -
- Where the Tenant is responsible for repair and maintenance the
Tenant ought not to be granted a new tenancy in view of the state of
repair resulting from his failure to comply with his obligations.
- Due to the persistent delay in paying rent by the Tenant.
- Due to the breach of any other substantial terms of the Lease by the
- That the Landlord has offered and is willing to provide or secure
the provision of alternative accommodation for the Tenant upon terms
which are reasonable having regard to the terms of the current tenancy
and to all other relevant circumstances.
- Where the current tenancy is a sub-letting of part only of the
Premises and the Landlord wishes to let the Property as a whole.
- That on termination of the current tenancy the Landlord intends to
demolish or reconstruct the Premises.
- That the Landlord intends to occupy the Premises for his own
purposes either for a business or as his residence.
So a secure, renewable lease is not 100% guaranteed you must
stay within the terms of the agreement else the landlord can give you
notice to vacate.
