Both parties must be able to bring a periodic tenancy to an end

In Centaploy Ltd v Matlodge Ltd ([1974] Ch. 1) the question was whether an agreement to grant a weekly tenancy ‘to continue until determined by the lessee’ was valid. It was held that it was not since the fact that the landlord had no right to give a notice to quit was repugnant to a periodic tenancy: both parties must have a right to bring the arrangement to an end (Whitford J. at 15)
