The World Law Dictionary Project

English may be the common language of the world, but the Common Law is not the common law of the world

That’s why, in a unique project, TransLegal has teamed up with leading law schools from around the world to create an online multilingual law dictionary linking the world’s legal languages to a single English law dictionary.

e.g. principle, consideration, jurisdiction

protected tenancy noun

a tenancy (=an agreement that gives someone the right to use land or a property) under which the amount of rent that the landlord can charge the tenant is limited by law and cannot be changed by the terms of the tenancy agreement. Protected tenancies often include other rights guaranteed by law, such as the right of the tenant to stay in the property for life.
Your landlord must be very careful when trying to evict you from a protected tenancy.
