Commercial property leases generally automatically qualify for the protection afforded to tenants at lease expiry by the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954. The parties to a lease may, by agreement, contract out of the Act. The main consequence of so doing is to remove the tenant’s rights of renewal, and eligibility for compensation in certain circumstances (eg landlord’s redevelopment ). See also Security of Tenure.
