These are the statutory frameworks for the occupation of land and/or  buildings where a relationship between landlord and tenant exists. The principal legislation is the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 (as amended) which negotiates Security of Tenure and the right to a renewal lease, on specified grounds, on the tenant, and the Landlord and Tenant Act 1927 which relates to the treatment of tenant’s improvements and the limitations on a claim from the landlord on damages for dilapidations.
