Our Property Team present a seminar looking at a number of issues that commonly arise when commercial tenancies come to an end, and examine a number of 2014 decisions of the Court of Appeal in the area to see what can be learnt from them.

Topics covered:

  • Andy Creer delves  into the distinctions between fixtures and fittings, the law surrounding annexation, and the application of such principles in Peel Land v TS Sheerness Steel.
  • Karl King examines liability of guarantors at the end of the lease and how such liability can, sometimes, be avoided, as happened in Topland v Smiths News Trading.
  • Emily Betts will speak on tenant’s failure to vacate at the end of the lease, and what fresh interests can sometimes arise if not addressed. This was recently revisited in Erimus Housing v Barclays Wealth Trustees, in which Emily appeared.
