Collective Enfranchisement & Lease Extension - An Advanced Guide to the Problem Areas
This interactive live broadcast session provides an opportunity to explore - working through case studies - some of the knottier problem areas, and gaps in the legislation, encountered in practice by landlords, tenants and their advisers.
