This concise and readable title explains the fundamentals of landlord and tenant law. While the sheer bulk of legislation applying to this area of law can appear intimidating, A Practical Approach to Landlord and Tenant provides a systematic guide to the principles and practice which is ideal for student and practitioner alike. The book covers the basics of landlord and tenant law, providing extensive treatment of both the common law and the statutory codes, and explaining and analyzing more discrete areas such as leases, tenancy, assignment and subletting, agricultural holdings, business tenancies, and possession proceedings. The seventh edition has been comprehensively updated to cover all recent developments in landlord and tenant law. It includes coverage of all relevant case law and sets out the various statutory codes applying to both residential and business tenancies, highlighting key points. This edition considers in particular the impact of the Localism Act 2011. Very much a practical guide, this title makes frequent use of examples, checklists, forms and precedents, and is specifically designed to assist the busy professional and student. A Practical Approach to Landlord and Tenant is an indispensable resource for those working in this field. The A Practical Approach series is the perfect partner for practice work. Each title focuses on one field of the law and provides a comprehensive overview of the subject together with clear, practical advice and tips on issues likely to arise in practice. The books are also an excellent resource for those new to the law, where the expert overview and clear layout promote ease of understanding.
