Distress for arrears of rent is still a highly effective remedy when properly applied and especially relevant to insolvency situations. However, the ancient origin of much of the law means that many of the concepts are unfamiliar to practitioners today.

In this book Iain Travers, a leading property litigator and partner at Nabarro Nathanson, and Anthony Tanney, barrister, have assembled a detailed explanation of law and practice of distress, together with all relevant legislation and a comprehensive library of precedents. The result is a unique single volume reference on the subject for all property law advisers.
