Landlord and Tenant Law takes a fresh look at the principles which provide the foundation of the landlord and tenant relationship. This relationship gives rise to a number of issues common to all types of tenancy--residential, commercial and agricultural. These issues are explored in the context of case law, statute and practice as well as social and economic policies. It also draws on the experience of other jurisdictions where appropriate. This represents an innovative approach to the study of the law of tenancies and challenges accepted understanding of landlord and tenant law. The book is designed not only to inform those seeking knowledge of the present law, but also to encourage thinking about fundamental principles of landlord and tenant law.
