Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


*L. & T. Review 138 Whilst a plethora of remedies is available for a tenant's breach of repairing covenant, their viability is dependent on a number of questions: When has the breach occurred? How urgent are the repairs? Does the landlord want compensation or the repairs completed? Who should undertake those repairs? Should the lease continue? Cost, time, complexity of the remedy and the gamble of litigation will also influence the decision, not to mention market conditions. This series of three articles explores the range of remedies available to a landlord, assessing the pitfalls of the procedures and effectiveness of each remedy.
