Can the landlord require me to leave the premises at the end of the lease?
Only in certain circumstances. Examples are cases in which the tenant has failed to comply with his/her obligations, or been persistently late in paying rent, or where the landlord wishes to use the premises for his own business or residence. For details, see Renewing and ending business leases: a guide for tenants and landlords. (Paper copies are available from the Free Literature, PO Box 236, Wetherby, West Yorkshire, LS23 7NB, Tel: 0870 1226236, Fax: 0870 1226237.) A landlord can also require you to leave the premises at the end of the lease if you have entered into a valid agreement to exclude security of tenure.
