Interpretation (Chapter 6).

48.—(1) In this Chapter “multiple tenants” means, in relation to a dwelling, 2 or more persons who are tenants of the dwelling (whether as joint tenants, tenants-in-common or under any other form of co-ownership) and “multiple tenant” means any one of them.

(2) References in this Chapter to a Part 4 tenancy coming into existence and cognate references shall be construed as references to the circumstances in which the tenancy referred to in section 28 is continued in being by virtue of that section.
