Continuation of long residential tenancies

3(1)A tenancy which, immediately before the term date, is a long residential tenancy shall not come to an end on that date except by being terminated under the provisions of this Schedule, and, if not then so terminated, shall subject to those provisions continue until so terminated and, while continuing by virtue of this paragraph, shall be deemed to be a long residential tenancy (notwithstanding any change in circumstances).

(2)Sub-paragraph (1) above does not apply in the case of a former 1954 Act tenancy the term date of which falls before 15th January 1999 but if, in the case of such a tenancy,—

(a)the tenancy is continuing immediately before that date by virtue of section 3 of the 1954 Act, and

(b)on that date the qualifying condition (as defined in paragraph 1(1) above) is fulfilled,
