For CPD events for property professionals across the Chilterns and Thames Valley


Leases and licences

Maidenhead Golf Club, Shoppenhangers Road, Maidenhead SL6 2PZ

David Haines and Richard Hosmer of Charles Russell Speechlys will be explaining the differences between leases and licences, the appropriate use of each form of agreement, supported by a variety of examples.

Spotted in The Guardian in August 2018:

"Mike Ashley is running House of Fraser’s stores under licence from the company’s administrator, EY, so he is free to hand back the keys without penalty on any store he does not want."  True or false?  Come along and find out.

As always, there will be the opportunity to pose questions during the presentation and for a general interaction on the latest in commercial property law.
