4.0 out of 5 stars The Law covering tenancy agreements for Landlord and Tenant
This is a very informative, practical and comprehensive guide detailing the legal obligations for both Landlords and Tenants in England, Wales and Scotland. This is essentially a reference book and is therefore not the sort of book that needs to be read from cover to cover.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very high level.
This is definitely a high level overview from the points of view of both tenant and landlord. While this is a good starting point it does not have a great deal of detail, and puts a very disproportionate emphasis on using the law and the courts to remove your tenants. If you believed Which?, no tenant ever left a property willingly at the end of their tenancy...

4.0 out of 5 stars The Law covering tenancy agreements for Landlord and Tenant, 29 Nov. 2003

Mr Peter J Lyons (Merton Park, London United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This is a very informative, practical and comprehensive guide detailing the legal obligations for both Landlords and Tenants in England, Wales and Scotland. This is essentially a reference book and is therefore not the sort of book that needs to be read from cover to cover. It has been compiled by legal experts and successfully manages to convey to the reader in plain English the legal terms and complexities of tenancy agreements.
The book starts by giving details of the different rights of tenants under the various types of tenancies currently being offered. Of particular relevance for both landlord and tenant alike are the different rights offered to tenants under Shorthold tenancies compared with Assured and other tenancy types. The book also gives sample cases of common problems encountered during the landlord / tenant relationship and gives a clear indication of each party’s legal positions.
The authors do insist that, in the event of a tenancy problem, it is not a replacement for legal advice. Nevertheless it does give the reader a good grounding in how to prevent such problems from occurring. It also arms the reader with a good basic knowledge of their legal position. This could be of particular use when discussing tenancy problems with a member of the legal profession.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very high level., 27 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Renting and Letting (Which? Essential Guides) (Paperback)
This is definitely a high level overview from the points of view of both tenant and landlord. While this is a good starting point it does not have a great deal of detail, and puts a very disproportionate emphasis on using the law and the courts to remove your tenants. If you believed Which?, no tenant ever left a property willingly at the end of their tenancy.

The one thing I wanted and for which I am still looking is a 'landlord's checklist' of everything that needs to be done before each new tenant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good information - will hopefully inprove the standards of landlords, 14 July 2010

This review is from: Renting and Letting (Which? Essential Guides) (Paperback)
A very comprehensive guide, though it still hasn't magically turned at least one landlord into a decent human being. Even with the knowledge of what is correct and what the landlord is required to do by law, there is still an uphill struggle! If more landlords read it maybe their attitude towards their tenants and attention to the condition of their rented property may improve.
