Survey: Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 - do we still need it?

United Kingdom

The law giving businesses the automatic right to renew their leases was fifty years old this year. The property market has become far more sophisticated over this period and there are now potential changes to the laws on the upwards review of rent on the horizon.

In light of this, we are looking to ascertain the market's views on whether it is time to consider revoking the automatic right to a new lease.

To do so, we have compiled a brief survey which will take no more than two minutes to complete. The results will be published to law-now users shortly and will be circulated to the property industry to encourage debate on the future of the relationship between landlords and tenants.
