Status: This project is complete. We are awaiting the Government's response to our recommendations

In this project we set out to reform the means by which a landlord can terminate a fixed term commercial or residential tenancy where the tenant has not complied with their obligations.

The project

Our recommendations were published in a report on 31 October 2006. 

Our report was based on a consultation we conducted in January 2004.
