Government to 'help halt court actions' on home repossessions
Anthony Collins Solicitors and the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) are teaming up to deliver two events that will update the housing sector on recent legal changes.
The seminars - to take place in Birmingham on March 21 and in London on March 26 - will guide housing professionals through new developments in legislation and discuss issues currently impacting the sector, such as welfare reforms and tenure changes.
The sessions will also analyse the practical consequences of these changes and give guidance for housing practitioners on how to respond effectively.
Helen Tucker, partner, and Jenny Francis, senior associate at Anthony Collins, will deliver interactive workshops which summarise current case law and address the effect of the Human Rights Act on repossession proceedings.
Emma Duke, associate, will also lead a session in Birmingham on tenancy agreements and suggested changes to take account of welfare reforms and green deal issues. Other speakers will deliver updates on issues such as the new anti-social behaviour reforms.
Helen Tucker said: “It is now more important than ever for housing professionals to keep up to date with the latest information and developments in housing law. The workshops will raise awareness of important legal changes in the sector and provide housing practitioners with valuable advice on how to deal with practical issues.”
CIH conference and seminar organiser Patrick Grace said: “These events provide the perfect opportunity for housing professionals to gain well-informed legal advice, supporting and allowing them to prepare for significant changes in the sector.”
