I am under occupation of a property as a tenant but the rent is paid by the firm in which I am a partner. Is it not that the partnership firm becomes a tenant under such circumstances?
The relationship of landlord and tenant is created by contract. Mere payment of rent by the firm does not necessarily establish relationship of landlord and tenant between the firm and your landlord. You have been found to be the tenant and the mere fact that a firm is making payment of rent on behalf of you would not make the firm a tenant.
