17. Meaning of 'land'.

A tenancy may be granted of land or any part of land. 'Land' generally includes mines and minerals and other strata under the surface, and buildings erected upon the surface; and all these are corporeal hereditaments1. Consequently tenancies may be granted of the surface of land, with the minerals and strata below and buildings above it, or of the surface alone2, or of the minerals and strata3, or of buildings or any part of a building4. Leases may also be granted of interests in land which involve the right to some use of or benefit from or privilege incident
