Blogger says tenants with Coronavirus should get 3 months rent free!9:26 AM, 5th March 2020

The rent to rent arrangement that I have (as the property owner) works very well and has done for almost 5 years. My particular thanks to this website for the R2R agreement which I have used successfully during this time. I will be seeking to renew the lease agreement with the renter within the next few months.
My specific query relates to the duration of a lease agreement. The aforementioned R2R agreement suggests that this should not be for ‘more than 5 years’ and I’m wondering why this is the case (Is there a requirement to register at the land registry beyond 5 years, or is it now 7 years?)
Would successive leases of 2 years, 3 years, 2 years etc therefore be the preferred option, with a specific clause that the previous leases do not count as a continuous period? How could such a clause be worded?
Appreciate any advice regarding this,
