Commercial Leases and Insolvency is accepted as the best source of reference for practitioners advising the parties when a tenant of a commercial property becomes insolvent. It examines a complex range of legal issues covering both the insolvency rules and property law. It also provides an overview of the various procedures available under the insolvency regime and the different contexts within which a lease may operate helping commercial landlords and mortgagees of commercial leases and tenants understand their respective rights and obligations when a tenant defaults in payments through insolvency.

The fifth edition incorporates substantial changes following the implementation of various parts of the Tribunals Courts and Enforcement Act 2007. This includes the abolition of distress in April 2014 and the introduction of the Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery regime. In addition, important changes affecting execution of judgments for rent are included – as well as the consequential repeal and replacement of rights to recover head-rent from sub-tenants included in the Law of Distress (Amendment) Act 1908.

This edition also covers numerous court decisions settling important points of law. Perhaps the most notable is the decision in Jervis v Pillar Denton confirming the extent to which rent is a priority expense in administration. Since the last edition the courts have also handed down significant judgements in many areas including in respect of creditor rights in voluntary arrangements, landlord rights to possession following administration and liability for business rates and of sureties following disclaimer. Other cases covered include:

  • Mourant & Co Trustees Limited v Sixty UK
  • MRC v Portsmouth City FC
  • Westminster Bank Plc v Kapoor
  • Glatt v Sinclair, Re Colliers International UK plc
  • Clydesdale Financial Services Limited v Smailes
  • Lazari GP Limited v Jarvis and re SSRL Realisations Limited (in administration)
  • Southwark LBC v Clarke
  • Schroder Exempt Property Unit Trust v Birmingham City Council
  • Shaw v Doleman
