Formerly published as part of the popular Practice Notes series, this revised and expanded edition contains a mass of legal and practical information within a compact, user-friendly format, providing a concise introduction to the law relating to private residential tenancies. Fully up-to-date, the book covers all legal developments in the field since the last edition, such as the new law in respect of deposit protection schemes.
Written by experienced practitioners, Residential Tenancies provides clear guidance on advising the client, whether landlord or tenant, on matters such as obtaining possession of premises, changing the rent, granting tenancies or bringing on action for arrears of rent, providing an invaluable aide-memoire for the busy practitioner.
The text is supported by an array of helpful checklists and a range of basic precedents for granting tenancies and for possession actions. There is also a chapter devoted to dealing with the problems most likely to arise in practice.
