Typically, but not always:
The Executive Committee of Havering Chamber of Commerce arranged a golf day for it's members on 14 May at Upminster Golf Club and Pinney Talfourd were proud to sponsor the event. Stephen Eccles and Damian Pitts, both of our Commercial Litigation Department were joined by two clients to play a round of golf followed by a dinner reception in the clubhouse.
Typically, after a glorious Wednesday (13th) the weather was not so kind the next morning and the rain did not stop all day. So after nine very wet holes the teams retired back to the clubhouse for dinner and the winners presentation.
Pinney Talfourd's team were delighted to win two trophies:
Stephen Eccles is also the proud owner of a set of exploding golf balls for the highest score!
A great day and delicious meal was had by all and the event helped to reinforce connections with the local business community, something which Pinney Talfourd work hard to maintain.
In 2007, the European Council agreed a new Energy Policy for the EU. One of the policies was to ensure that 20% of the EU's overall energy needs are met by renewable sources by 2020.
In 2009, the EU agreed a package of legislation to implement the new energy policy. This package of legislation is known as the Climate Change and Energy Package or the "20-20-20 package", and includes the Renewable Energy Directive 2009.
The Conservatives say that they are aware that British families and businesses are ‘at the mercy of fluctuating energy prices’ and so the government seeks to secure for itself what for decades energy company’s had for themselves – control over how energy is sourced and priced, how information about energy is supplied to consumers and, importantly, it has the right to define, through the law, how energy companies and consumers interact.
A Conservative government seems to intimate a progression towards harmonising the UK better with the requirements of the Directive. However, affordable energy, generated by renewable energy sources, such as Solar, Hydro-Power and Bio-Fuel has been in vogue for some time already. With electricity being produced from sources like Solar Panels, Wind Turbines and Bio Sources, consumers already have various alternatives to power station supply available to them.
Such energy sources have been available to consumers for a number of years but relationships between, in particular, green energy companies and consumers and competition between ‘green’ companies in the renewable energy sector has only relatively recently brought the sector into the spotlight. The sophistications of marketing and selling the technology associated with producing renewable energy and the challenges of the industry’s regulation has brought to the surface problems for both consumers and renewable energy companies alike.
As the commercial property market continues to come out of recession, there have been an increasing number of cases where landlords are refusing to renew commercial leases.
Under the LTA 54, a commercial tenant within the Act has the right to renew the lease on basically the same terms as previous subject to agreement as to rent and modern updating.
There are however specific grounds on which a Landlord can refuse to renew.
An example of this was in the case of Mussellwhite v Yoseffi. The landlord opposed the renewal of a lease where the tenant had persistently refused the landlord access to inspect the property, had made rent payments late, and had failed to open the premises as a shop in contravention of the lease.
The Court agreed that the landlord was entitled not to renew and terminated the tenant’s interest. The tenant appealed and in July 2014 the Appeal Court ruled in favour of the landlord holding that lack of access and failure to use the premises as agreed were substantial breaches of the lease.
