Pawlowski, Mark ORCID: 0000-0002-5473-5809 (2020) Leases - why the formality of a deed? Landlord and Tenant Review, 24 (2). pp. 72-74. ISSN 1365-8018

The article examines the advantages of using a formal deed for the creation of a valid lease at law, the consequences of not using a deed and the circumstances in which a void lease at law will take effect as a valid lease in equity. It also questions whether the formality of requiring a lease to be described as a deed or to be executed or signed as deed (and the need for attestation and delivery of the deed) continues to serve any useful purpose in modern leasehold law.
