Easy Law Training

Are you both a landlord under an AST and a tenant under a long lease?

This can throw up problems, for example who is responsible for repairs, and also whether you are authorised to sublet to tenants under your lease in the first place.  

This online course is a recording of a workshop from Housing Barrister Robert Brown which looked in detail at the legal issues raised in this situation.

Know your rights and how to do things properly!
