Home Business Tenancies

Tenancies granted for business use will more often than not have protection under Part 2 Landlord and Tenant Act 1954. This gives the tenant a right to renew their tenancy whenever the fixed term expires—essentially giving the business a tenancy for life. Where a tenancy is granted for a home, but the tenant wishes to operate a business from that home, the position can become unclear. Landlords could be worried about giving consent for the tenant to operate a business from their property.
