This extensive report is the product of research the Institute undertook regarding the law relating to tenancies of residential premises, which is the part of the law of landlord and tenant. It includes a proposed Act that balances the interests of landlords and tenants with the hope that it will provide a satisfactory legal framework for their activities. A plan for a security of tenure is discussed and included to assist in making an informed decision on the subject. This report covers the present situation, scope of the reform project, the tenancy agreement, obligations of the landlord and tenant, remedies, failure to give possession, termination of tenancies, disposal of abandoned goods, resolution of disputes, service and delivery of notice of documents, contracting out, transitional provisions, and security of tenure.
