Housing is always on the political agenda, particularly in view of a national crisis in meeting the demand for the provision of good quality affordable homes. That means that the law is often being developed with a view to meeting need and advisors of landlords and tenants need to keep abreast of the courts decisions and the intentions of parliament.
This seminar aims to provide those advising housing providers or assisting tenants (both in private practice or in house) with:
1. An update on the recent case of Cardiff v Lee which will change the procedure for applying for warrants based on breach of a suspended possession order from now on, how the case can be used or the difficulties it poses avoided;
2. An update on other significant housing cases;
3. An insight into the legislation in the pipeline and the effect that might have if it eventually makes the statute books (such as the v Lee, AirBnB cases will be looked at and the legal and costs implications of these decisions. Future issues such as Jackson’s proposals for fixed costs, Homelessness Reduction Bill, Renters Rights Bill and the consultation on Banning Order Offences will be considered)
4. A discussion about how Jackson’s proposals for fixed costs may affect housing cases, particularly in the area of disrepair.
