The Assignment Tasks
Part 2: Hotel Project = 80%
Along with some associates, you wish to form a company for the purpose of acquiring a country house and converting it into a hotel, which you will then lease to a hotel management company.

Prepare a report outlining to your associates the legal implications of your undertaking.

Your report should address the following matters although you do not have to give equal attention to all of them:
• Describe how you would set up your company and the advantages of using a corporate structure.
• The property could be either leasehold or freehold; discuss the implications of each.
• Show that you know how a title is conveyed.
• Are there any easements or restrictive covenants affecting the title?
• How do you go about obtaining planning permission? It might be that the building is listed.
• Show some knowledge of leasehold property including covenants.
• Consider what steps need to be taken during construction work to ensure that you are not liable in tort.
• Demonstrate some knowledge of business tenancies under Part 2 of
the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.

Assignment 2: Legal implications of construction decisions

Notes to the assignment

The report should be structured to acceptable industry standard; including title and contents page, headings, Harvard-style references and page numbers.

The reports must be written in your own words and any quotations from documents or websites must be clearly shown as quotations – plagiarism and extensive quotation from published documents will lead to a deduction of marks.

All the basic information is to be found in the Blackboard lecture notes and handouts accompanying the course, but you should read further in order to widen and deepen your knowledge and understanding, and also research via the web, in particular for any recent changes in the law.

In order to achieve a 2:1 grade or above you need to present the assignment in a professional manner which might be of use to a member of the construction and property professions. This does not require anything other than writing in plain English within a recognised report structure.

Marking and Assessment
The assignment will be marked according to the standard marking grid, as shown in the Course Module Study Guide.
There is a minimum criterion that all sections should be covered and show a level of competence (approximately 2500 – 3000 words).
