Previously titled Quiet Enjoyment: Arden and Partington's guide to remedies for harassment and illegal eviction, the eighth edition has been substantially expanded to cover a wide range of problems concerning what are now statutorily recognised as 'rogue landlords'. As well as harassment, illegal eviction and criminal trespass, content includes tenancy deposits, licensing, banning orders and a range of other activities which interfere with an occupier's enjoyment of his or her home.
Quiet Enjoyment has been written with the busy adviser in mind. It is practical and easy to navigate so will also be accessible to the non-lawyer. Chapters outline occupiers' rights and explain the different civil and criminal court procedures and all other remedies.
This edition is up to date to include new measures in the Housing and Planning Act 2016 and there is a new chapter on safety measures including gas, fire, electricity, smoke alarms, and the consequences if landlords fail to secure them.
