A tenant held a protected tenancy of one room in a house, but later extended his occupation to the entire floor.
Held: He did not thereby lose his status as protected tenant, and it did not operate as a surrender of the existing tenancy. The section protected the continuing tenancy because it referred to a grant of the tenancy by a person who was then a landlord.
