The Rent Act 1977 protects tenants but not licensees or lodgers1. Subtenants are included by definition2. Tenancies at will at a rent3 and tenancies arising by estoppel4 are capable of being protected. The Act does not, however, protect employee licensees as opposed to employee tenants5, or a caretaker6, or a person allowed to remain temporarily on premises without any title7, or a mortgagor who attorns tenant to the mortgagee, at any rate after the contractual relationship created by the attornment clause has ceased
