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 of land and property law which is ideal for student and practitioner alike.

The book covers the basics of landlord and tenant law providing extensive treatment for both the common law and the statutory codes, and explaining and analyzing such diverse areas as leases, tenancy, assignment and subletting, agricultural holdings, business tenancies, and possession proceedings.

The sixth 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 the impact of the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008 on residential tenancies and also contains increased coverage of Tenancy Deposit Schemes, Human Rights Act challenges and disability discrimination.

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.
