Security of tenure
Under Part II of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 a tenant generally has a statutory right to renew its tenancy at the end of the term if it has occupied the premises for the purposes of its business.
The landlord and tenant can, in certain circumstances, agree to “contract out” so that the tenant will not have the benefit of the statutory rights to a lease renewal. If your Landlord is asking to “contract out “in this way it is important that you fully understand the implications. You will be asked to swear a declaration to confirm this before occupying the premises.
