G Orlik (Meat Products) Ltd v Hastings and Thanet Building Society: 1974

The tenant requested a new lease and the renewal of personal rights attached to the first lease.
Held: The court could not countenance renewal of purely personal rights under the 1954 Act. It was said that: ‘The object of Part II of the Act is to give security of tenure to business tenants by, inter alia, conferring power on the court to order a new tenancy on the property comprised in ‘the holding’, and, however widely expressed, section 35 cannot, in our judgment, consistently with the scheme found in Part II, be construed to enable the court to enlarge the holding, for example, by ordering the grant of an easement over the landlord’s land or conferring rights over the landlord’s land not hitherto enjoyed.’
