Reviews of this and earlier editions
"this classic housing law text is essential reading  ...immediately accessible to the busy practitioner ... its clarity and breadth of treatment make it invaluable to inexperienced and specialist housing lawyers alike. All those who regularly act for tenants and borrowers will find this book indispensible. Those who act for claimants fail to read it at their peril ... it should only be removed from the desk for the purpose of carriage to court"

This book helped me overturn an incorrectly awarded accelerated possession order, get my now former (thankfully!) landlord to refund my deposit in full. Probably the best value £60 I've ever spent.    Amazon purchaser
