The subject of landlords' consents is confusing for many practitioners, and yet most leases contain restrictions on when and how a tenant may assign, sub-let, make alterations or change use.

Dealing with these restrictions is a day-to-day part of property management, and therefore a crucial concern for surveyors who must interpret their meaning and either make or respond to applications for consent.

Until now there has been no single source of practical guidance to this area. Landlords' Consents: A Practical Guide fills this gap. The first book to approach the area from the surveyor's perspective, it offers accessible advice for those acting on behalf of both landlords and tenants.

Clear explanations help the reader to understand the meaning of the restrictions, and how to serve and respond to applications including how to act 'reasonably'. The book also explains how to handle costs and when and how to document consents, and recommends legal remedies when things go wrong.

Practical features include:-

  • Flow charts demonstrating how to approach an application from both the tenant's and the landlord's perspective
  • A case-by-case approach to common reasons for refusing consent, with commentary on whether they are 'reasonable'
  • Case summaries and examples to illustrate the principles and the pitfalls
  • Tables to summarise the different positions for different types of application
  • Extracts from legislation so that all the key reference material is to hand
  • Checklists and sample letters to help readers put the guidance into practice
Landlords' Consents: A Practical Guide has everything the surveyor needs to approach this area with confidence, and get the best results for their client.
