Contracting out of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 was never intended to be a difficult process.

However, there are question marks over its operation in a number of areas which is unfortunate, since it is a procedure which it is crucial to get right: it may underpin the property valuation, or it may vitally affect practical plans for the property.

The most recent caselaw usefully points the way to a more pragmatic and less technical approach and this webinar considers the procedure comprehensively in a way that applies common sense to the problems.
