One of the results of these market trends has been the common acceptance of negotiated changes to aspects of standard forms of lease such as the Auckland District Law Society’s lease form, and the Building Operators and Managers Association’s (now the Property Council of New Zealand) various forms of lease. Another has been the large volume of judicial reaffirmation, re-formulation, and sometimes rejection, of legal rules applicable to leases. Less emphasis is placed on traditional property law principles as remedies sounding in contract, tort and equity are increasingly applied. Abandoning basic principles in this area can lead to uncertainty and the risk of “throwing the baby out with the bath water!”

For these reasons it was felt the seminar should offer some review of “first principles” applicable to leases, as well as the conventional coverage of recent case law and matters of leasing practice.
