Real Estate Update

  • Rachael Jones

Welcome to the spring edition of Real News, our quarterly guide to key developments in real estate law. In this edition:

  • Richard Ascroft considers the impact of a Brexit on the UK commercial property market;
  • Rob Shaw provides guidance on the recent launch of the alterations protocol;
  • Peter Fletcher looks at the case of Cocking & Cocking v Eacott & Waring where it was held that a licensor can be held liable for nuisance created by a licensee;
  • Sarah Nunnery Jones provides detailed commentary on a recent Court of Appeal case where an employer who had failed to issue a valid pay less notice could commence a second adjudication on the same payment application; and
  • I explore the impact of the recent decision of the High Court in EMI Group Limited v O&H Q1 Limited where it was held that tenants cannot assign to their guarantors.
