682. Termination of statutory tenancy.

A statutory tenancy comes to an end if:

  1.  

    (1)     the dwelling house ceases to exist1; or

  2.  

    (2)     an order for possession2 is made; or

  3.  

    (3)     the tenant permanently ceases to occupy the house as his residence3; or

  4.  

    (4)     the tenant gives up possession by agreement4 or consents to somebody else becoming tenant5; or

  5.  

    (5)     the tenant changes the character of his occupation6; or

  6.  

    (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
