L&T 1954 Act Notices

The 1954 Act can look like a lawyers’ cash-generator, with its highly technical and complex procedures. If you know how the termination procedures and the various types of notice fit together, then you’re ahead of the game both as regards knowing what actions are available and when solicitors should be consulted, and as regards asking the right questions when you do.
