On the termination of the contractual tenancy between the parties, a statutory protected tenancy will arise if the property falls within the limits prescribed by the Rent Act 1977 or Housing Act 1988 (see chapters 16, 17 and 18). If the demised premises are commercial premises, then the tenant may have a right to a continuation tenancy under s.24 Landlord & Tenant Act 1954, Part II. In these circumstances, the landlord will not be able to obtain possession unless he can prove he has one of the grounds for doing so (see Chapter 19).
