Enforceability of Landlord and Tenant Covenants 3rd ed
This highly respected work, often cited in the Court of Appeal, provides detailed guidance on the enforceability of leasehold covenants. It covers both “new” tenancies created since the Landlord and Tenant (Covenants) Act 1995, which made fundamental changes in this area, and “old”, pre-1995 tenancies.
Nearly two decades on from the 1995 Act, this new edition explains current law and practice, examining the important changes introduced by subsequent human rights and property legislation, and explaining its interpretation by the courts.
