The increasing sophistication of buildings means that most of the work on an average project will be sub-contracted, so sub-contractors now play a crucial role in practically all building projects. This book is a comprehensive examination of the legal principles which affect sub-contractors and explains in detail the key provision of the standard sub-contracts for use with the various JCT forms of the main contract. It examines issues such as design by sub-contractors, variations in sub-contract work, payment and set-off, and sub-contractor's claims for extensions of time and loss and expense.

This trusted book provides an essential overview of strategies for investment, markets and appraisal, making it an ideal read for any student or professional working in property investment, property funding, real estate and land management. Concepts are explained with great clarity and the authors use worked examples to elucidate key principles where possible, enabling readers to develop their knowledge of the sector and to strengthen their understanding of the challenges that lie ahead for property investors.

Property and Money is a simple guide to the investment and financial aspects of commercial property. Putting property into its financial context, it seeks to bridge the world of the surveyor and property developer and the investment and financial markets of the City of London. The book starts from first principles, assuming no pre-existing knowledge. It is thus suitable for students as well as more established property practitioners and its appeal extends to bankers, solicitors, accountants and fund managers whose work brings them into contact with commercial property transactions. This updated and expanded edition includes coverage of: - Principles and pitfalls of property finance - How the property investment market works - Evaluating property and its performance - Understanding property companies and their accounts - How property companies get into trouble - Bank loans, bonds, profit-share agreements, leasebacks and other methods of property finance - The crash of the early 1990's and its consequences. Based on a widely acclaimed series of articles that appeared in Estates Gazette magazine, Property and Money is complemented by an extensive index and glossary and enlivened by Nick Newman's cartoonist-eye view of the property world.
