Residential Tenants’ Rights - A Practical Guide to the Landlord & Tenant Act 1987
Residential tenants’ rights of first refusal under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987 can make the sale of the freehold or the grant of a lease which affects a building within the Act very difficult from the landlord’s perspective - and a valuable right in the tenants’ hands. Failure to offer the disposal to the tenants first is a criminal offence and the tenants have rights to take any such disposal from the purchaser for the price the purchaser paid.
This live broadcast session provides a practical and concise overview of the residential tenants' rights - outlining what landlords, tenants and purchasers should do to comply with the Act - and exercise rights under it.
