10. Leasehold Covenants  

This chapter considers covenants that exist in relation to leasehold land—also known as ‘leasehold covenants’. As the name suggests, these are promises made between landlords and their tenants and form the crucial foundation of this leasehold relationship. The chapter explores the nature and importance of leasehold covenants, how such covenants are enforced between the original parties, and enforceability where there are successors to the original parties. In view of changes to the law introduced by the Landlord and Tenant (Covenants) Act 1995, this chapter considers both the pre-1996 and post-1996 regimes for determining enforceability of leasehold covenants. Finally, the chapter discusses the important issue of remedies for landlords and tenants facing a breach of covenant.

Cover Textbook on Land Law

Judith-Anne MacKenzie and Aruna Nair

Course-focused and comprehensive, Textbook on Land Law continues to provide an interesting, accessible, and original account of contemporary land law. The eighteenth edition builds upon the book’s unique and straightforward approach. Using a fictional case study to illustrate the key principles of land law, the chapters demonstrate the real-life applications of a subject students often find very abstract, while clarifying complex areas and common points of confusion. The book consists of seven parts. Part I provides an introduction to estates and interests in land. Part II looks at the acquisition of estates in land. Part III considers the two legal estates of freehold and leasehold, and in particular looks in detail at the obligations in a leasehold estate, their enforcement and remedies for their breach. Part IV looks at trusts and proprietary estoppel. Part V is about licences and a review of the law relating to the family home. The next part considers third party rights, including mortgages, and the final part concludes with a consideration of the definition of ‘land’.
