Tanfield Talks “Live Event” – Opposition Grounds under 1954 Act s.30
5th June 2020
“Summer’s Lease hath too short a date”: William Shakespeare (Sonnet 18)
In this 4th talk of a series of remote presentations, Tanfield’s Mark Loveday and Gemma de Cordova ran through the grounds of opposition to new tenancies in s.30 Landlord and Tenant Act 1954. In the ‘new normal’, can the tenant insist on a new lease? How is this affected by the inevitable rent arrears during the Covid 19 pandemic? How can landlords cut their losses and redevelop? Is the S Frances case still relevant?
