With the downward pressure on social housing income, all social landlords are under pressure to manage their housing and tenancies as cost-effectively as possible. During this practical and interactive session members of our Housing Management team - together with Toby Huggins of Unity Street Chambers - will provide practical tips and guidance for dealing with a range of areas that we see regularly cropping up as management headaches for social landlords. Areas to be covered during the seminar will include:

  • Injunctions v Possession action – getting the best bang for your buck
  • Tips for managing Equality Act arguments effectively
  • Service charge recovery from leaseholders – getting the money in
  • Recovering abandoned properties as quickly and cheaply as possible
  • Tenancy fraud – getting it right from day one to avoid wasted expense
  • Maintaining and securing rents

Our aim will be to ensure that everyone attending the seminar will leave armed with a number of practical tips for managing their stock and resolving tenancy problems more efficiently
