Esso Petroleum Co Ltd v Fumegrange Ltd: CA 1994

The parties entered into an agreement. The plaintiff said it was not a tenancy, but a licence since it had retained substantial control over the premises by its ability to regulate the way the occupier conducted his business.
Held: The agreement was a licence and not a tenancy because of extensive rights of control which the agreement gave the landlord over the premises.
