A lease was granted for a long tenancy at a low rent. The premises were later divided into maisonettes, but were then again occupied jointly and as one unit. The tenants were found to be entitled to the protection of Part 1, and to a new lease at the same rent. The landlord had served two notices, one for each sub-unit.
Held: To be effective, the notice to quit must be served as one notice, and in respect of the whole of the premises. The two notices were ineffective, and the tenancy continued.
