Customer Review

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

Yes, this is the book we always see in court when possession actions are listed- it is the fountain of simple information explained for all to understand.

We welcome the seventh edition which, as the authors say, is the essential purchase for all clients and advisers working with actual or prospective defendants in possession proceedings. The proof of its success is that we see the book regularly on the bench and outside the court, and recommend it for all those new to these threatening proceedings from lenders.

This work is another in the growing series of the estimable Legal Action Group's `adviser' publications. "Defending Possession Pleadings" robustly continues the LAG's ongoing mission to compile, write and publish meticulously researched works of reference, mainly for professional advisers -- legal practitioners, local government and housing officers, academics and the like -- or those of us, quite frankly, who are desperate.

And there are few other conditions in life which occasion as much desperation as re-possessions where the lenders are non-communicative and over-zealous just before we go into court.

Clear, succinct and accurate, "Defending Possession Proceedings" sets the law in its context. There is much new material in this new seventh edition. The text is supplemented with official forms and notices, statements of case and applications, an instructions checklist, the Rent Arrears Pre-Action Protocol and CPR Part 55.

So, if you're a practitioner in this difficult and complex area, you'll find "Defending Possession Pleadings" an essential and easy to use reference tool in your day to day practice and another of the excellent LAG `advice' books they publish in an area where they continue to offer the best advice of the lot to all who are involved in these matters.
