Security of tenure provides statutory protection to tenants leasing a property for business purposes, and was brought about when legislation was introduced in an attempt to give business owners the confidence and security to carry out their business activities.
One example of security of tenure is the protection of tenants from a lease being terminated prior to the agreed end date.
There are certain, but limited circumstances in which security of tenure does not apply, but these are very specific.
If, as a landlord or a tenant, you have an issue relating to the security of tenure of a lease, FisherWright Solicitors can help.
Licences to occupy
A licence to occupy differs from a tenancy agreement in that it only gives the licensee the right to occupy land. Usually licences are for a short period, often between six and twelve months.
A licensee has ‘partial possession’ of a property, and have certain responsibilities in relation to it.
If you are a landlord or a tenant, and are considering a licence to occupy, or have an issue relating to one, FisherWright Solicitors can help you.
