09:05 Update on Part II of The Landlord & Tenant Act 1954

Ralph Bullivant, Partner

It is more than five years since the reforms effected to the 1954 Act. The reforms have had a profound impact on the lease renewal process and we will be looking at:

  • how the reforms are working five years on
  • traps to look out for
  • recent cases
  • what happens if a landlord or tenant goes insolvent during a lease renewal?

Carbon reduction commitment Bill Chandler, Partner

Due to commence in April 2010, the carbon reduction commitment will have profound implications for the property sector as a whole, not just those companies and organisations who are obliged to participate in the scheme.

We consider:

  • what is the carbon reduction commitment?
  • how does it work?
  • what do you need to do about it?
  • what are the implications for owner-occupiers?
  • what are the implications for landlords and tenants?
