After the termination1 of a protected tenancy2 of a dwelling house the person3 who, immediately before that termination, was the protected tenant of the dwelling house is, if and so long as he occupies the dwelling house as his residence4, the statutory tenant of it5. A dwelling house is referred to as subject to a statutory tenancy when there is a statutory tenant of it6. All statutory tenancies under the Rent Act 1977 are now regulated tenancies7.
A statutory tenant may not be evicted without a court order
