Introduction

The Act gives flat leaseholders - in mixed commercial/residential buildings as well as in blocks of flats - rights of pre-emption. So, where the immediate landlord proposes to dispose of an interest in such a building it may first have to offer the disposal to the residential tenants. Breach of the Act is not only a criminal offence for the landlord but gives the flat leaseholders rights to take the disposal from the purchaser for the price it paid.

This webinar will consider how to avoid some of the problem areas that come out of this ‘ill drafted, complicated and confused’ Act.
