Renewing Leases

Renewing and terminating commercial leases

Commercial Leases are becoming ever shorter and practitioners are having to cope with the statutory regime governing lease renewal with increasing frequency. The 1954 Act is notoriously complex, having been interpreted, and re-interpreted by the courts - and it has many traps for the unwary. This course considers the law and practice relating to lease renewal and termination under the 1954 Act and focuses on recent developments and the more troublesome areas. The course is aimed primarily at transactional lawyers and does not deal with litigation procedures. Topics covered include:
  • Tenancies within the Act
  • Excluding the Act
  • Termination procedures
  • Opposing renewal
  • The terms of the new lease
Suitable for commercial property practitioners
