Course Advising the Private and Social Landlord After the Housing and Planning Act 2016


Advising private and social landlords is becoming increasingly complex as the Government tackles ‘rogue’ landlords.

This course will enable you to advise private landlords on their new powers to take back abandoned properties but also how to avoid falling foul of new legislation.

Local authority housing landlords and tenants are facing some of the biggest changes in housing legislation since the Housing Act 1985, with the end of the lifetime tenancies, and the extension of the Right to Buy (RTB) to housing associations means they are not escaping the wind of change either.

This course will suit practitioners with a good working knowledge of landlord and tenant law.

The course will cover the three parts of the Act:

Tackling private landlords’ behaviour

• What is a banning order and how do private landlords become subject to them?

• The database of rogue landlords

• Forcing landlords to repay rent through Rent Repayment Orders

• Additional tests for licencing properties in multiple occupation

• Fines as an alternative to prosecution under the Housing Act 2004

Increasing private landlords’ powers

• Taking possession of abandoned properties without a Court Order

Social housing

• An outline of the end of lifetime tenancies for council tenants

• The extension of the RTB to Housing Associations

You may also be interested in attending: Social Housing Law Update 2017 which takes place at the same venue in the afternoon.
