Property dispute resolution webinar series: property agreements and competition law

A county court judgment published recently quashed restrictive covenants contained in a Crawley Borough Council letting scheme on the basis that such restrictions breached competition law (Martin Retail Group Ltd v Crawley Borough Council).

The decision contains some surprises and highlights the need to take such claims seriously with relevant specialist competition law and economic advice.

This judgment, as well as the wider application of competition law to land agreements, is covered in this webinar. The webinar also covers restrictive title covenants and leases containing use restrictions, and the practical impact it can have.
