Buildings with residential tenants - even mixed commercial/residential buildings - may be subject to residential tenants' rights of pre-emption under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987, Part 1.

Unless care is taken, landlords of such buildings may find themselves unable to sell or let their buildings without first offering the sale or lease to the residential tenants; breach of the Act is a criminal offence. Tenants have rights to take the disposal from the purchaser for the price the purchaser paid.

This introductory half-day course provides a practical and concise overview of the residential tenants' rights - outlining what landlords and purchasers should do to comply and the steps to be taken by tenants where there has been a breach of the Act.
