Junior Landlord & Tenant Conference 2015

Tanfield Chambers’ Junior Landlord & Tenant Conference is now in its second year and is an opportunity for junior lawyers (both in-house and private practice) to catch up on and consolidate their knowledge of the law across both commercial and residential landlord and tenant law.  It is designed to cater for junior practitioners of all levels of knowledge and experience. The conference will take place on 16 October.

This year’s extended conference will offer delegates the option to tailor their own day, drawing from workshops across four streams – residential, commercial, enfranchisement and a more general ‘pick n mix’ stream.

Topics will include:

  • Common misconceptions in relation to residential leases
  • Determining residential tenancies - 1988 Act, Rent Act, Secure tenancies
  • A focus on Deregulation Act 2015 legislation update
  • Introduction to 1954 Act
  • Valuation and compensation on termination under the 1954 Act
  • Lease renewals and new leases in focus
  • An overview of enfranchisement under the 1993 Act
  • Current issues in collective enfranchisement
  • Concurrent leases and less usual leasehold structures
  • An introduction to valuation on enfranchisement
  • Relief from forfeiture in commercial and residential leases

Philip Rainey QC will also speak on mixed-use premises.
