This book is not one to be read cover to cover. Instead it is a crucial reference for anyone who is either a landlord or a tenant.
The Which Guide concentrates on the legal aspects of renting residential property. The language used is clear, concise and not drowned in "legalese".
There are numerous case study type senarios in order to answer most of the obvious and some of the not so obvious questions.
The main advantage of this publication is the depth to which it explores legal issues. No further research would be necessary in most cases as this book answers the case in black and white.
All aspects of the different forms of tenancy are explored with views from the side of the landlord and that of the tenant being shown.
As an extra bonus there are sample tenancy agreements included in the appendix.
If you are either a landlord or a tenant this book could just s ave you a fortune in solicitors fees.
