Course Residential Landlord and Tenant Law: An Update


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. The Housing and Planning Act introduced a range of key changes to the operation of the Housing Act 2004 in April 2017 and there are ongoing consultations on further changes.

This course will review the changes that have been made so far and consider some of those that are yet to come, providing a useful overview of the issues relevant to this area of law and helping you to provide up to date advice to your clients.

Topics covered include:

  • Section 21 notices: The decision in Spencer v Taylor and the Deregulation Act 2015 changes
  • Fixed Penalties and RROs: The new fixed penalty regime in England for housing offences and the extension of Rent Repayment Orders for some housing offences.
  • Banning Orders and the Rogue Landlord Database: Operation of the banning order and rogue database regimes.
  • Section 11, Landlord & Tenant Act 1985 and Property Standards: The position after Edwards v Kumarasamy and changes to the Defective Premises Act. Potential changes in disrepair practice as a result of the Deregulation Act. New requirements for smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Proposals to mandate electrical checks in the Housing and Planning Act
  • The Immigration Act and the Right to Rent: Complying with the legislation, points to note and update on the current position.
  • Agency Regulation: Fee transparency after the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and the consultation on a complete ban. Requirements for Client Money Protection and the current consultation on its implementation
  • The Regulatory Future: The situation in Wales and the prospects for regulation in England
