SRA Competency B


Business rates, Brexit, MEES - the combination can make it hard to advise landlords and tenants whether to oppose renewal or seek a new lease when the ‘1954 Act protected’ lease comes to an end.

This half-day course provides a timely review of the necessary evidence for successful opposition to renewal as well as the court's stance to any proposed changes in a 'renewal' lease.

What You Will Learn

  • Redevelopment & ground (f): a sea-change in intention following S Franses v Cavendish? Are building leases still good evidence?
  • ‘Own occupation’ ground (g) - 2 years, 5 years? Reconciling Patel v Keles Gulf Agencies v Ahmed; Frozen Value v Heron Foods
  • Discretionary grounds of opposition: why timing & preparation are key and how to use them tactically
  • Lease length in an uncertain market - short term, tenant break right? Iceland v Castlebrook; Dukeminster v West End
  • Interim rent - the view from the courts?
  • Who will pay to upgrade to EPC ‘E’ under the Energy Act - what will you advise as to the impact on renewal terms?
