Are you aware of the current issues in this area of law?

The law relating to residential tenancies is again in flux with a range of important decisions in the Courts and Tribunals and a great deal of new legislation prior to Parliament being dissolved for the election. In addition there is the possibility of further legislation emerging from whoever forms the new Government after May.

The decision in Spencer v Taylor and the Deregulation Act 2015 changes
  • Tenancy Deposits
The decisions in Superstrike v Rodrigues and Charalambous v Ng and the changes in the Deregulation Act
  • HMO licensing

  • Section 11, Landlord & Tenant Act 1985 and Property Standards
The position after Edwards v Kumarasamy. Potential changes in disrepair practice as a result of the Deregulation Act. New requirements for smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Further restrictions and obligations on the horizon.
  • The Immigration Act and the Right to Rent
Complying with the legislation. Points to note. Update on current position.
  • Agency Regulation

This is not an area of law I am too familiar with but the enthusiasm of the lecturer for his subject and his obvious knowledge in this area made this a very enjoyable course.
