Thus far, no replacement has been found (although commonhold may be seen as a by-pass in the long term), and it is accepted that there must be an ultimate sanction for fundamental breaches of the covenants in a lease while leases still exist, so legislation has concentrated instead on modifying and ameliorating this unpopular ancient remedy.
