How much can a renewal lease under the 1954 Act be changed from its current terms? What is meant by the Act’s requirement to have ‘regard to the terms of the current tenancy and to all relevant circumstances’ given that that the courts have made it clear that the parties are not bound ‘to the terms of the current tenancy in any permanent form’?

This webinar draws practical lessons from recent cases, where the courts have had to consider the impact of a changing market and statutory regulation on lease terms.
