Each title focuses on one field of the law, providing 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 resourcefor those new to the law, where the expert overview and clear layout promote clarity and ease of understanding. Now in its eighth edition, A Practical Approach to Landlord and Tenant continues to provide a comprehensive and systematic guide to the particularly complex principles and practice of landlord and tenant law. Condensing the case law and statutory codes into one manageable volume, this book providesa valuable, user-friendly introduction for lawyers and students alike. The authors explain the fundamentals of landlord and tenant law, providing a broad coverage from creating a tenancy through to termination. Offering extensive treatment of both the common law and statutory codes, this book provides detailed analysis of areas such as leases, tenancy, assignment andsubletting, agricultural holdings, business tenancies, and eviction. The eighth edition has been comprehensively updated to cover all recent developments in landlord and tenant law. It considers the requirements on landlords defined in the Deregulation Act 2015, as well as the developments on the seizing of tenant's assets as contained in the Commercial Rent ArrearsRecovery Procedure (CRAR) 2014. This edition provides an overview of the effect that the provisions of the Immigration Act 2016, and the Housing and Planning Act 2016 will have on residential tenancies in England. It also reflects on the impact of new case law, such as the advances in the tenancydeposit protection scheme as well as changes to business and assured tenancies. Very much a practical guide, this title makes frequent use of examples, checklists, forms and precedents, 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.
