Let’s all talk about Wales

We don’t often publicise events here, but given that this one involves at least couple of the NL team, we are damn well going to.

Housing Law:
The Welsh Devolution Effect
1st May 2014

Cardiff Law School, Museum Avenue, Cardiff, CF10 3AX

 

A one day conference run by the University of Bristol Law School, Anthony Gold, and Arden Chambers examining the two major housing Bills in Wales, the Housing (Wales) Bill and the Renting Homes (Wales) Bill.

The Welsh Government is carrying through a substantial legislative programme reforming all aspects of housing and tenancy rights and responsibilities. These significant changes will ultimately lead to an effective separation of Wales from England in housing and tenancy law. This conference brings together leading housing and landlord & tenant lawyers with some of the architects of the new legislation to offer a review of the planned changes and the future of Welsh housing law.

Speakers

  1. Ceri Breeze, Welsh Government: ‘Overview of housing bills and trajectory’

  2. David Smith, Anthony Gold: ‘Private rented sector: Regulation’

  3. Giles Peaker, Anthony Gold: ‘Homelessness: Welsh Amendments’

  4. Stephanie Smith, Arden Chambers: ‘Gypsies and Travellers: The Housing (Wales) Bill’

  5. Martin Partington CBE QC, Arden Chambers: ‘Renting Homes’

  6. David Cowan, University of Bristol Law School/Arden Chambers, and Simon White, Welsh Government: ‘Knotty questions for Renting Homes in Wales’
