Introduction

This study is about the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1954. The Act addressed two main topics, originally: in part 1 the protection of residential tenancies, and in part 2 the security of business tenancies. Part 1 has been superseded by later Acts (Wikipedia, 2017). This study will therefore concentrate only on Part 2, the statutory framework for regulating business tenancies.
