    No lawcruncher seemed to be suggesting that if you used a deed to create a tenancy, there need not be exclusive possession, or a definite term of years.

      Ah, I see. Well, it's not essential to specify a definite term. One can let on a contractual periodic tenancy, for instance.

        That does have a definite term (of 1 month, usually), it just gets renewed.

        By definite term, I mean you can't grant the tenancy for the length Mr X's life, for example.

          True, but- by the Law of Property Act 1925- an attempted lease for life is construed as a lease for 90yrs. terminable after T's death.
