Leasehold Repairs and Maintenance

This course gives a strong foundation to understand the contractual obligations of both the leaseholder and landlord in managing repairs & maintenance issues. Its what it says on the tin. I would have liked a future course to look at leasehold alteration requests and retrospective landlord consent.
