Understanding Commercial Property Management

Commercial leases are the foundation and essence of property management. Anyone who works in this area needs to be familiar with what they say, what they mean, and how to work them. In this course we explain the key commercial terms of a commercial lease, and focus on the problems the attending delegates have encountered. It is ideal for administrators who have not been trained in the nuances of property - administrators, PA's, secretaries, accounts personnel, facilities managers, newly qualified and APC candidates.

Telecom Law and Practice Conference 2020

The Electronic Communications Code contains powers for taking rights over land for the purposes of delivering telecommunications. It is generally muted that the code is exactly what the telecom industry wanted, and the legislation was passed with virtually no changes, despite substantial stakeholder proposed amendments. So why is it resulting in so many challenges, failures to agree; which is causing inertia in the roll out of the technology in the UK?
