As a busy property lawyer, you will know that leasehold is a complex and high-risk area of practice. So, this presentation is designed to provide you with a vital overview on a range of current matters that you otherwise might not have time to read about.

A key part of this seminar will be its focus on the practical implications of developments in the field of residential long leases, including tribunal decisions and recent legislative activity in Parliament.

As this area of the law is rapidly evolving, the content is liable to change (eg, as and when the government announces new leasehold reform measures).

Key topics covered by this course will include:

  • The Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Act 2022 and the latest on CMA enforcement action
  • Fire and building safety: cladding, fire risk assessments, EWS1s, leaseholder deeds of certificate, changes to the landlord certificate
  • 2023 updates to the LPE1 and TA7
  • Recent decisions on Airbnb sub-lets
  • A range of current issues pertaining to repair covenants, service charges and insurance
  • Is the law on forfeiture about to be overhauled? What about assured tenancies and long leases?
  • Licence for alterations granted in breach of landlord covenant
  • Was the landlord prevented from redeveloping the roof space?
  • Replacement lease plan following rejection by Land Registry
  • Was application made for Licence to Assign?
