Video: Housing Management Law School – Autumn term

The latest Autumn term of our Housing Management Law School was held online on 11th November.

As usual during this session, we feature a roundup of recent case reports, regulatory and legislative changes in the housing law world.

This term’s revision session is the Equality Act and Proportionality Defences. We have seen a marked increase in defences to possession proceedings based on the Equality Act and proportionality under the Human Rights Act. In this session we review the basis of those defences and what steps housing management professionals can take in advance to reduce the scope and risks of those challenges.

The hot topic for the Autumn session is the Building Safety Bill. The Building Safety Bill will have a profound impact upon Registered Providers in terms of how buildings are built, maintained and managed. We outline the features of the bill and provide the essential information for Housing Managers to be aware of.

The Law School is free to attend and exists to deliver training to Registered Providers of Social Housing across the country, educating and updating their housing management staff with the essential legal knowledge that they need.
