Opposing Lease Renewals - What, How, Why and When?

For the landlord wishing to get possession back at the expiry of a tenancy, the grounds and procedure for opposing renewal under the 1954 Act can look like an obstacle course. In fact, the cases lay down ways through which are comparatively straightforward, so the smart adviser can help the client to the right outcome effectively. There are also several practical tips which help to reduce the amount of compensation payable. Tenants, on the other hand, need to know the tactical levers which can help put them in the strongest negotiating position. The caselaw continues to develop, and this webinar considers recent cases as well as reviewing the grounds of opposition, tactics, timing and procedure.

Repurposing - Commercial and Residential In Conflict?

The planning system increasingly encourages flexibility and repurposing, but private property rights tend to be more restrictive. The law of private nuisance and restrictive covenants operates side-by-side with the planning system to control land use. It is not just freehold rights, but also rights arising under leases, which may constrain the freedom of both landlords and tenants. The move to repurposing is undeniable, nevertheless, and urban areas are increasingly mixed-use. Whether or not housing is provided in a mixed-use development, residential occupiers increasingly find themselves next to commercial uses, with potential for conflict, and this is underlined by the nuisance claims which make their way to court. In this webinar we consider the legal issues raised, and potential means of resolution of the difficulties.

Service Charge Heads Up: Where Is Best Practice?

CPT has been running training events on service charges since 1994. In those days, best practice was defined by a non-compulsory service charge code, agreed upon and promoted in unison by a number of property bodies. In 2019 it emerged as an RICS Professional Statement, which was mandatory and since it was accepted across the service charge industry, anyone – whether a RICS member or not – was going to be judged by whether they followed it. It had teeth in as much as anyone who was non-compliant had the threat of sanctions and public humiliation. Is it any wonder why it’s one of the top free downloads from the RICS website?
