There has already been much written about the reasons and reasoning of this decision from the legal profession but what could it really mean in practice to leaseholders? Leasehold Life is very pleased to publish an opinion piece by Solicitor David Whitney of Landlord and Tenant specialist law firm (and ALEP member) Painsmith Soliciitors. David also contributes to the PainSmith Landlord and Tenant Law Blog.
