Real Estate Disputes 2019 Review

We look back at some of 2019’s important and influential Court decisions as well as actual and indicative legislative changes which impact on many of the property sectors in which we are involved

15 January 2020

2019 was for many a year of waiting…for Brexit. Whilst that inevitably had an impact on the property market, there were many reported and important court decisions in 2019 relevant to the Commercial Real Estate Market.

The use of Brexit to frustrate a lease; clarification over the requirements for rectification of property documents; and guidelines over a landlord`s approach in providing consent as a condition of leasehold covenants all featured in headline reported cases.

Our 2019 review also covers a number of other decisions and changes in the corporate recovery and insolvency sector, energy power and utility sector (including a detailed review of the significant number of cases relevant to the Electronic Communications Code) and the public wealth sector.

2019 was a busy year for our Real Estate Disputes practice and our 2019 review highlights why.
