This webinar conducted via Zoom from Matthew Hall and Geraint Wheatley of Kings Chambers is designed to be a practical guide to the basis upon which the Court sets the terms of new business leases upon renewal under the 1954 Act.
1954 Act: Principles and Themes relating to Duration, Breaks and Other Terms – Geraint Wheatley
The breadth of the Court’s discretion relating to terms other than rent is wide and can be confusing. The leading case of O’May states that the party seeking changes to the old lease must justify them, but how can such justification be provided? Geraint will address the underlying principles which in turn can be used as a guide to the exercise of the Court’s discretion. He will specifically consider the points to look out for in relation to lease duration, break clauses, and guarantors.
Valuation in Lease Renewal – ITZA Mystery – Matthew Hall
