Dilapidations - preparation and negotiation

Escaping Lease Commitments

When it has become unprofitable to trade from a property, maybe because it is over-rented, how can tenants get out? They can market the premises, but may have to grant some form of rent subsidy, which may be unacceptable to the landlord. This module will consider the extent to which landlords can control the issue, as well as what happens when the tenant simply vacates the premises, also possible routes to a solution via insolvency mechanisms.

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.

Getting Contractual Notices Right

Service of a notice is supposed to be a simple step bringing clarity and certainty into contractual relations. As a formal procedure, though, it has to be got right, and the law reports have literally hundreds of cases demonstrating the variety of ways in which it can be got wrong. A notice must be served on (and by) the right person, and at the right address. It must be served by the appropriate method, and in accordance with any time limit. And it must say the right thing. This module considers each of these areas, considering the rules as to calculation of time periods, deemed service and the various postal service options, and whether service requirements are mandatory or permissive.

There are traps for both landlords and tenants, and you need to know how to identify the most reliable option.
