These are the statutory frameworks for the occupation of buildings and/or land where a landlord
and tenant relationship exists. The principal legislation is the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 (as
amended) which confers 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 landlord’s claim in damages for dilapidations.
