A couple of interesting housing law webinars in the next few days (well, hopefully both interesting, as I’m doing one of them) for all your ‘working from home but still interested in housing law’ needs.
On Thursday 30 April at 10.30 am, the latest in Tessa Shepperson’s Landlord Law Legal cases webinars features Justin Bates of Landmark Chambers on the right to rent judicial review in the Court of Appeal (our note here). Justin acted for the Residential Landlords Association as interveners, instructed by me, and I rather suspect he will have Views on the outcome.
There is a fee for the webinar and all proceeds go to Crisis to support their work urgent work with the homeless during the pandemic.
And on 6 May, at 12 – 1 pm, my Anthony Gold colleague Wallace White and I are giving a webinar on housing conditions claims in practice, following the roll out of the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 to all periodic tenancies on 20 March 2020. This was going to be an ‘in a meeting room with people and food and drink afterwards’ kind of seminar on 13 March 2020, but, well, global pandemic happened.
We will be looking at the practicalities of how to bring claims for housing conditions, what sort of issues could be the subject of claims, and thinking about tactics, strategy and how ‘fitness’ claims can open up new ways of challenging housing conditions. We’ll be answering as many questions as we can, but I’m afraid you have to bring your own drink of choice. I am debating whether to wear a tie.
The webinar is free but limited to 200 places, of which a lot have gone already, so if you are interested….
