Hatfield, Emma (2012) A critical look at landlord's remedies for tenant's breach of repairing covenant: Part 1. Landlord and Tenant Review, 16 (4). pp. 138-142. ISSN 1365-8018

This, the first part of a three-part article on a landlord's remedies for a tenant's breach of a repairing covenant, examines the remedy of damages. Considers, with reference to case law, the limitations to the damages available: (1) during the term of the lease, including the landlord's obligations at each stage; and (2) at the end of the lease. Highlights provisions of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1927 s.18 concerning the capping and denial of damages, and examines the position in respect of a landlord's remedy for works performed to a higher standard than the tenant was required to carry out.
