Interim rent is an amount which, pursuant to LTA 1954, s 24A, a tenant is to pay while its tenancy is continued pursuant to LTA 1954, s 24. For details of the requirements which must be satisfied in order for a business tenancy to be continued by LTA 1954, s 24, see Practice Note: LTA 1954 business lease renewal—termination.
