A lease is essentially a contract which creates an interest in land. Any contract may be made subject to certain conditions, and leases are no exception to this rule. The condition may be a condition precedent, such as the grant of planning consent to a change of user, so that the lease does not take effect at all unless the condition is fulfilled, or a condition subsequent, whereby the lease terminates should the condition on which it is granted cease to apply and the landlord therefore has a right to re-enter.
