Land Licences

By John Sharples

Land licenses - for the use and occupation of land - cut across many areas of property and business practices, including such diverse activities as mineral extraction, franchises, licenses to build, landscaping, and residential and social housing. However, the rules surrounding their drafting are complex and the outcome of drafting can be unpredictable. This book is the only work to deal exclusively with UK licenses relating to the use and occupation of land, and it answers many of the key questions relevant to the drafting and granting of UK proprietary licenses, including: ** What is the true nature of the rights granted? ** What rights does the licensee have against third parties? ** What contractual/statutory restrictions are there on the licensor's ability to increase fees? ** When and in what circumstances can the license be assigned? ** How can the license be terminated? ** What rights/obligations are implied into proprietary licenses? ** What licenses attract stamp duty land tax? - A CD-ROM accompanies the work and contains draft notices and pleadings for use and adaptation.
