This new book provides comprehensive and expert guidance on how best to implement and comply with the changes that have been made to the Electronic Communications Code since 2022 in relation to Property Law. Jonathan Wills is a leading practitioner on the Code, having represented a number of private land-owner clients who have been affected by the code.

The Electronic Communications Code: A Guide for Property Lawyers provides commentary and advice on the Supreme Court decision of 2022 stating that operators who are already in situ on land are not barred from seeking code rights; and the coming into force of the Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Act 2022.

With reference to all decided case law the book considers the different parts of the Electronic Communications Code including:
- The definition of what Code rights are
- How Code rights are acquired and resisted
- What determines what terms are contained in Code agreements
- The valuation of consideration (rent)
- Applications for compensation,
- Termination and renewal of agreements

This title is included in Bloomsbury Professional's Property and Land Law online service.
