Contractual termination of leases: lessons from the Commonwealth - Part 3

James P. Brown, Mark Pawlowski

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the final part of this article, the writers consider the interrelation between contractual termination and the various statutory provisions governing forfeiture and termination of a business tenancy under Pt II of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954. The article concludes by suggesting that termination by acceptance of a repudiatory breach is not only a welcome, but necessary incursion into leasehold law in order to provide tenants with the ability to end the lease in cases of serious landlord default.
