This highly respected work, often cited in the Court of Appeal, provides detailed guidance on the enforceability of leasehold covenants. It covers both "new" tenancies created since the Landlord and Tenant (Covenants) Act 1995, which made fundamental changes in this area, and "old", pre-1995 tenancies.

A decade on from implementation of the 1995 Act, this new edition explains current law and practice, examining the important changes introduced by subsequent human rights and property legislation, and explaining its interpretation by the courts.

  • Steers practitioners step-by-step through a particularly complicated area of law
  • Combines detailed analysis of legislation and case law with practical guidance
  • Deals with the significant changes introduced by the Human Rights Act 1998, the Contract (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999, and the Land Registration Act 2002
  • Explains the implications of key recent case law, such as Avonridge v Mashu, Bloomfield v Williams, and Kellogg v Tobin
  • Includes a new chapter dealing with specific performance and injunctions as remedies for enforcement of landlord and tenant obligations
  • Use checklists to clarify complex aspects of law and practice
  • Reproduces forms and statutory material in appendices so they can be consulted easily
