Save Our Pubs: Explaining Security of Tenure

A new year means a fresh start for many individuals and businesses. Unfortunately, some things don’t change. As with previous years there continues to be a change to our local towns and villages. Shops are closing and in particular public houses are fast approaching a rarity. Many property developers are now buying public houses to be redeveloped as houses or flats, closing, what isfor many, a local meeting point such as pubs.

For longstanding tenants there can be a provision under the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 for security of tenure. Provisions and notices must be fully complied with before the landlord can terminate the tenancy. Security of tenure affords the tenant some protection as long as the Tenancy Agreement does not exclude Section 25 of the Act. It can prevent the landlord from terminating the agreement bar some exceptions for all commercial properties, not just public houses.

I am the litigation specialist in this area and will be able to assist with any upcoming disputes with your landlord ensuring your rights are protected and the local community does not suffer further!
