A Guide to Landlord and Tenant Law provides a strong foundation in commercial landlord and tenant, and housing law.

This clear and accessible textbook aims to introduce the reader to the fundamentals of both residential and commercial landlord and tenant law by considering the nature of the tenancy and the relationship between the parties. It examines the main elements of the commercial lease including rent, repair, alienation, termination and statutory renewal.

The main types of residential tenancy are also considered including assured and assured shorthold tenancies, secure and Rent Act tenancies and long leasehold enfranchisement. The book aims to familiarise the reader with the contractual documentation as well as the common law and statutory codes which form the basis of landlord and tenant transactions. It contains useful features such as:-

  • extracts from the Model Commercial Lease
  • key case summaries, a glossary and chapter summaries
  • further reading lists and a companion website with practice questions and legal updates
In addition, students on the Legal Practice Course and Bar Professional Training Course will find this to be a useful supplementary resource as will professional surveyors and lawyers looking for a refresher on the latest landlord and tenant law.
