Abstract

Examines the Law Commission report which recommends the abolition of the remedy of distress for rent. Discusses the advantages of distress to landlords, the disadvantages, distress statutes, restrictions, levying procedure, costs, what can be distrained, leased equipment, third parties′ rights, insolvency, sub‐tenants′ liability, certificated bailiffs, and the Law Commission′s views. Surmises that it is now a matter for the Lord Chancellor to decide whether legislation is desirable.
