Real World - Finance and Real Estate News

April 23, 2009
The Spring edition of Real World focuses on the issue of tenant default and a recent case that shows how landlords can lose out compared to other creditors when a tenant goes into administration - we explain the possible remedies in more detail in the update of our Rent Arrears wall chart, a link to which is also attached below. In Real World we also explain the complex rules on stamp duty land tax on abnormal rent increases, take a look at when it may be possible to enforce an informal agreement and review a case that suggests the courts are now more willing to unravel a contract or deed entered into by mistake. Finally, try our quiz on the finer points of energy performance certificates.
