A tenancy is perhaps best described as a temporary ownership right. Ownership in the sense that while it lasts, the tenant has exclusive use of the property, temporary ‚ in the sense that at some time in the future the right will cease and the right to possess and enjoy the land or property will revert to the landlord. Tenancy is a form of conditional ownership in that it involves obligations that impose duties on both the landlord and his tenant.Get Legal Advice
