Course Commercial Leases for Local Authorities: Differences and Pitfalls


Management of local authority property portfolios creates unique problems and property lawyers face specific problems given the nature of local authority work.

The course is aimed at local authority lawyers as well as those who act for authorities from time to time. It sets out a useful overview for less experienced lawyers and is a useful update for more experienced practitioners.

The course covers:

  • Informal occupation: advising local authorities where there is no formal documentation
  • Mixed use schemes: service charge issues and common parts problems
  • Drafting issues: review of issues relevant to local authorities including the use of agreements for lease, licences for alterations, rent and rent review, break clauses, and gaining possession at the end of the term
  • Regulating occupation before commencement and after termination: avoiding 1954 Act protection and estoppel
  • Start up schemes and tenant-friendly leases
  • Green issues: green buildings, green leases, and other environmental developments and considerations
  • Management issues: rent review, repair, regearing and service charge problems and advising the estates department on everyday management problems
  • Recent case law and a series of case studies
