Retail Leases Seminar

  • Author : Bill Stark - 31-05-2012

Yesterday (30 May 2012) I filled in for Sam Hopper at a Retail Leasing Seminar. I spoke to Sam's papers on Terminating leases and Seeking relief against forfeiture (Sam was struck down by laryngitis). Rob Hay also spoke at the seminar.

I follow both of their property law blogs. See: (a blog entitled "The Property Law Blog"), and

Copies of all of the papers from yesterday are available from Legalwise Seminars (see:

The only comment I have about Sam's paper is that he displays an obvious bias when discussing V & O Princi Pty Ltd v Prestige Holdings Group Pty Ltd [2010] VSC 627 (he acted for the landlord in that case, and I acted for the tenant).
