A Straightforward Guide to Managing Commercial Property, revised edition, substantially updates the previous edition in the light of recent changes in landlord and tenant law. The book will enable the reader to understand the main areas of this complex field, one that is usually left to the professionals. By using this clear and easy to understand guide, the process of managing commercial property, in the main smaller premises, will become that much easier. The book explains commercial properties and the law, discusses business lettings and also the role of advisors, such as estate agents and solicitors, the law and repairing obligations and the complex business of service charges and challenging charges in the courts. In addition, the process of surrendering and assigning leases is discussed plus the landlords rights when repossessing a property.
