This manual provides practical, userfriendly guidance on how a landlord or licensor can obtain possession of business premises and how a tenant can oppose such an action or renew the lease.

It gives a clear and authoritative explanation of the law, procedures to adopt, evidence required and orders the court may make – so practitioners can advise with confidence.

It also deals with licences of property in the business context and other arrangements where there is no lease and non-payment of rent.

  • An ideal "how to" manual – takes readers step-by-step through procedures
  • Provides clear guidelines on the process and evidence required
  • Structure of the book mirrors the workflow of practitioners in possession cases
  • Covers a wide range of subject matter such as forfeiture, termination of tenancies, new tenancies and possession proceedings
  • Contains specimen letters, forms, draft notices and witness statements throughout the text
  • Includes statutory extracts in the text and in appendices, providing swift access to all relevant law
  • Completely up to date with recent case law developments
