26Provisions as to reversions.N.I.

(1)Where by virtue of any provision of this Part a tenancy (in this subsection referred to as “the inferior tenancy” ) is continued for a period such as to extend to or beyond the end of a superior tenancy, the superior tenancy shall, for the purposes of this Part and of any other enactment and of any rule of law, be deemed so long as it subsists to be an estate in reversion expectant upon the termination of the inferior tenancy, and if there is no intermediate tenancy, to be the estate in reversion immediately expectant upon the termination thereof.

(2)In the case of a tenancy continuing by virtue of any provision of this Part after the coming to an end of the estate of the immediate landlord, the person then having the reversion immediately expectant upon the coming to an end of that estate shall, from such coming to an end and so long as his term subsists, be deemed, to the extent and for the purpose of preserving the incidents to and obligations on the said estate as would have subsisted if that estate had not come to an end, to be the immediate landlord in relation to the tenancy so continued.

(3)Where by virtue of any provision of this Part a tenancy (in this subsection referred to as “the continuing tenancy” ) is continued beyond the beginning of a reversionary tenancy which was granted (whether before or after the commencement of this Act) so as to begin on or after the date on which but for this Part the continuing tenancy would have come to an end, the reversionary tenancy shall have effect as if it had been granted subject to the continuing tenancy.

(4)Where by virtue of any provision of this Part a tenancy (in this subsection referred to as “the new tenancy” ) is granted for a period beginning on the same date as a reversionary tenancy or for a period such as to extend beyond the beginning of the term of a reversionary tenancy, whether the reversionary tenancy in question was granted before or after the commencement of this Act, the reversionary tenancy shall have effect as if it had been granted subject to the new tenancy.
