Legislation for us and you

If you’re looking to, or currently run, a Leased and Tenanted pub in England or Wales, there are laws you need to be aware of that protect you. These laws cover how we work with tied licensees and outline your rights, practices, and the compulsory procedures.

In Scotland, we follow a voluntary Code of Practice to ensure your protection. When you work with us, you can trust that you have a solid legal foundation to rely on. Click on the region that is relevant to you below.
