677. Effect of tenant having another house.

The fact that the tenant has another house elsewhere1 does not preclude his becoming or remaining a statutory tenant so long as he genuinely occupies each set of premises as a home2, as where business requires him to maintain a second residence3 or where he is in the process of moving4. This principle is, however, to be applied with some reserve5, although relatively brief periods of actual occupation by the tenant may suffice6. A mere holiday house is not a home for this purpose7.
