Review quote

'Landlord and Tenant Law has a clear aim: to provide an accessible introuduction to landlord and tenant law. It achieves that aim with considerable ease. The authors should also be applauded for their approach and, by managing to limit the text to less than three hundred and fifty pages, it is an excellent introduction for students or newly-qualified practitioners and a handy reference for more experienced practitioners.' -
