Housing Conditions Training

I offer several in-house training courses on Housing Conditions Cases –

An Introduction to Housing Conditions Cases

Litigating and Settling Housing Conditions Cases

Fitness for Human Habitation

Evidence in Housing conditions cases

These are half day courses. Prices are negotiable depending on numbers.

These courses are aimed at practitioners with litigation experience but who are looking to take on these cases in the future.

In the first course we explore basic principles such as the repairing duties of landlords (and tenants), what do we mean by ‘repair’, fitness for human habitation, remedies and quantum.

In the second course we look a the relevant protocol, expert evidence, issuing proceedings inc injunctions, witness statements and quantum in detail.

The'fitness' course focusses on the new duties created by s9A Landlord and /tenant Act 1985 and paricularly, the meaning of fitness for human habitation.

I also provide ongoing consultancy support in these cases. This can be a one off agreement to review a single case or a regular monthly retainer depending on that is needed. This includes screening of new cases, drafting letters, reviewing protocol responses, discussing problems...
