Property Managers Association event 2015

27 November 2015

For the third year running, we were delighted to host this year’s Property Managers Association event. Joined by clients, colleagues and experts from across the industry, we presented a well-received session covering:  

  • practical tips on getting landlord’s consent and what should be your considerations if you receive a ground (F) notice
  • an introduction to, and reminder of, the importance of collateral warranties and third party rights as vital protection against latent defects
  • case law update – a review of the past year’s decisions.

We issued a survey to members of the PMA to canvass views on the current state of the market. This year the spot light has been on omni-channel retailing – how it is affecting retailer tenants and whether there have been any long term changes to their lease arrangements.

The results of the survey were presented at the PMA event in November 2015 in the form of report - which you may access below, together with the slides from the event. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions – we’d love to hear from you.

Presenting a winding up petition to recover pandemic rent arrears

The government has now published new regulations to replace the winding up restrictions mentioned above from 1 October 2021. The key point of interest from a landlord and tenant perspective is that these new regulations will prevent a landlord from presenting a winding up petition to recover rent until 31 March 2022 where the sums are unpaid by the tenant because of the financial effect of the pandemic.

Restrictions on landlords’ remedies extended again and extra protection to be given to certain businesses

The delay in the full easing of lockdown restrictions and the knock on effect for certain tenants (particularly those in the hospitality and entertainment industry) has clearly caused a change of heart and the government has now announced a further extension of the restrictions.
