Abstract

Considers the different bases on which occupancies can be created without necessarily creating security of tenure. Discusses the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, the Law of Property Act 1969, Tenancy at will, licences, and “concessionary rent” lease as devices to achieve such an occupancy. Concludes that occupancy without security of tenure is useful in recessionary times for both landlord and tenant, and is best achieved by a formal tenancy subject to a contracting out order granted pursuant to the 1969 Act.
