All landlords are subject to the statutory repairing obligations under the Landlord & Tenant Act 1985 – which cannot be excluded! But do you know what they are?
If this worries you – have no fear. This special Easy Law Training workshop from housing barrister Peter Marcus will be looking at landlord’s repairing obligations in detail along with dealing with court proceedings.
The law relating to landlords’ repairing obligations is incredibly complex. You have for example:
- Obligations under the civil law – e.g. the landlord’s statutory repairing covenants, and also
- Various offences under the criminal law – for example relating to statutory nuisance and health and safety
Landlords (and their letting agents) are expected to know and understand all these obligations – and can be sued and/or prosecuted if they are breached.
In this one day workshop Peter Marcus will be looking, not just at what the law is, but also at recent legislation and case law (including the new anti retaliatory eviction rules) and what you can do if a claim is brought by your tenants – which could be very useful!
Peter will also be talking about YOUR issues and has asked that delegates bring details of any problems they may be experiencing so they can be discussed in the group.
Note that this workshop is also suitable for social housing landlords.
