What is the procedure for terminating a ‘let’ of a storage container where no lease was put in place?

Lets of residential accommodation are largely regulated by statute (for example, assured and assured shorthold tenancies are regulated by the Housing Act 1988 and secure tenancies are regulated by the Housing Act 1985). Lettings of certain other types of property (such as certain business tenancies) are also regulated by statutory regimes.

A let of a storage container is, naturally, not a letting of residential accommodation (and it is assumed that nobody is living at the premises). It is assumed that the unit is not used for storage for business purposes (even for the purpose of a business carried on elsewhere), which may cause the tenancy to be protected by the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954. The termination of such a letting is therefore not governed by statute but instead is regulated by common
