Opposition to lease renewal for redevelopment – 5 top tips each for landlord and tenant

Available from: 27/02/2024

‘Intention to redevelop’, under s.30(1)(f) of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 is conventionally summarised, sounds like a straightforward matter to prove, but ground (f) has been examined exhaustively by the courts, and there are potentially numerous issues to tackle.  Cases continue to emerge, bringing new problems.

The nature of the landlord’s intention has been considered in the headline-making S Franses Ltd case in the Supreme Court, and subsequent decisions, shedding new light on this aspect.   The issue of the landlord’s chances of bringing about its redevelopment scheme also continues to make for difficult judgements.  The simplistic understanding may be that the landlord who goes to court with a planning consent in his back pocket can’t lose, while the landlord without one can’t win; but the picture is far more nuanced than that.

Topics covered in this webinar include:

  • Is the landlord’s motivation relevant to consideration of its intention?
  • What are the options when the landlord finds itself at trial too early?
  • How big a spanner in the works is a refusal of planning consent?
  • Scheme A or Scheme B? Redevelopment now or in two years’ time?  Problems and solutions for the landlord whose intentions change
