Course Advanced Leases: Avoiding the Elephant Traps


This half-day course focuses on the more complex issues relating to commercial leases and will take delegates through a variety of topics, offering tips – and practical ways to avoid traps – for both landlords and tenants.

It is led by two very experienced trainers, one of whom brings the benefits of property litigation experience to the lease drafting experience of the other, and will cover:

  • Tricky issues with guarantees: EMI v O&H; TCG v Girdlers
  • Landlord’s costs: alienation, alterations, legal costs: Avon Freeholds v Garnier
  • Assumptions and disregards in open market rent review: is there an alternative?
  • Expert/arbitrator determination: which should you advise?
  • Insurance
  • Service charges
  • Terminal dilapidations: supersession; assessing damages – Car Giant v Hammersmith
There will be ample opportunity to ask questions.

This course is aimed at commercial property practitioners with a good basic knowledge of basic lease and landlord and tenant issues who are looking to expand on this expertise and thus their client base. It will serve as a refresher and update for those who regularly advise on more complicated leases.

This course builds on the Certificate in Commercial Leases
