A periodic tenancy is a tenancy that can be created either by express agreement or by inference. The period of the tenancy will usually be the period by reference to which rent is reserved, rather than when it is payable.
By way of example, if the parties agree (or agreed under a previous fixed term lease) an annual rent of £30,000 payable monthly, a yearly periodic tenancy will likely arise, rather than a monthly tenancy.
