711. Secure tenancies.

Although a tenancy is incapable of being a protected tenancy at any time when the landlord's interest belongs to a local authority or certain other public bodies1, certain housing associations2, the Housing Corporation or a housing trust3 or a housing co-operative4, in those circumstances the tenancy, if granted before 15 January 19895, will generally be a secure tenancy (which may include a licence)6 provided that the tenant or one of the tenants occupies the dwelling house as his only or principal home7. Housing associations, the Regulator of Social Housing and housing trusts cannot generally grant secure tenancies after that
