This course focuses on one of the recognized Land Dealings under the National Land Code – The Rights of Tenants and Landlords.


As currently there is no Landlord and Tenant Act in the country, discussion will mainly focus on judicial decisions handed down by the courts in this country and other common law countries.


Issues discussed include the principal covenants by landlords and tenants, tenant’s rights to quiet enjoyment, tenant’s obligation to pay rent, landlord’s remedies if tenant defaults in paying rent, landlord’s right to evict tenants, whether “self-help” is still available, distress proceedings, and prospects for a Landlord and Tenant Act in the future.


This course will end with the discussion on the recent proposal by the government to implement “Rent to Own” or “Lease Purchase”, and the Latest Legal Position of Short-Term Rental Of Strata Properties via the Airbnb platform.
