A tenant at sufferance may maintain a claim of trespass by virtue of his possession1, and, like any other person holding without title who is deprived of possession, he may bring a claim for recovery of possession against a mere wrongdoer, that is someone who has entered into possession without the landlord's consent2. A tenant at sufferance, as with any occupier of land, may also bring an action in nuisance combined with or independent of an action in trespass
