A statutory tenancy comes to an end if:
(1) the dwelling house ceases to exist1; or
(2) an order for possession2 is made; or
(3) the tenant permanently ceases to occupy the house as his residence3; or
(4) the tenant gives up possession by agreement4 or consents to somebody else becoming tenant5; or
(5) the tenant changes the character of his occupation6; or
(6) the tenant enters into a new contractual tenancy7.
Mere payment of rent, if it can be referred to the statutory tenancy, does not give rise to the inference of a new contractual tenancy
