Landmark Chambers


Landmark Chambers are delighted to announce the launch of the 2nd edition of "Property Notices: Validity and Service" written by Tom Weekes

DATE: 27 Jul 2011

The widely acclaimed Property Notices: Validity and Service provides the definitive account of the law relating to property notices. It contains a clear and practical guide to the legal principles governing whether a property notice is valid and whether it has been properly served. The importance of those principles for property lawyers cannot be over-stated: in the field of property law, rights are frequently exercised by the service of a notice and, for the party that has attempted to serve a notice (and perhaps its lawyers), the consequences of a finding that a notice is invalid may be disastrous.

This new edition has been extensively revised and updated and includes commentary on:

• recent case law (including Ben Cleuch Estates Ltd v Scottish Enterprise (2008), Prudential v Exel  (2010), Hexstone v Westlink (2010), Hilmi v 20 Pembridge Villas (2010), and MW Trustees v Telular (2011);
• the effect of a consensual “withdrawal” of a notice to quit or a break notice;
• the computation of time limits for the service of notices;
• sections 17 and 18 of the Law of Property (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1994; and
• the law on waiver as it relates to notices

Property Notices: Validity and Service is the only work dedicated to this core area of practice and it is essential reading for all property lawyers.

Property Notices: Validity and Service is available on hardback for £75.00 and is published by Jordan Publishing.

Reviews of first edition

“ informative and authoritative account of a topic of undoubted practical significance”
 Conveyancer and Property Lawyer

“To the property litigator (or other professional) preparing and serving property notices, this is a “must have” book. It fills an obvious gap on the shelf. It will repay its cost time and time again ... Insurers would do well to consider issuing this book free of cost of their insured. It would save them a packet.”
Landlord and Tenant Review

“Whether the reader has a commercial, enfranchisement or housing practice, this book is a must and deserves the ringing endorsement provided by Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury [in the foreword to the first edition].”
Journal of Housing Law
