What can I do if my tenants stop paying rent? From time to time a landlord will experience delays with a tenant's rental and outgoings payments, which is bad for business. A landlord’s most effective tool is the threat of eviction, and where a tenant has ongoing liquidity problems the best thing may be to replace them with a new tenant.

The new Health and Safety at Work Act comes into force in April 2016. This legislation will add a number of new features to the health and safety landscape, which landlords will need to consider. Under the current Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, commercial landlords owe health and safety duties where they own a building which is used as a workplace. These duties apply whether the building is used for their own business or leased to another employer.
