RENT REPAYMENT ORDERS

Rent repayment is a substantial penalty for landlords who do not obtain HMO licences and can also be used for other matters. It has been the subject of a number of recent decisions by the Upper Tribunal.

This talk will consider:

  • When a RRO can be sought
  • What period of time can be asked for
  • How much the Tribunal will award
  • What criteria is used in considering the award

David Smith, Partner, JMW Solicitors

FIRE SAFETY AND BUILDING SAFETY – THE LATEST POSITION

The Grenfell Tower fire occurred more than five years ago, but the implications continue to resonate for residential properties. This session will cover the various non-statutory attempts to find funding to remediate buildings as well as the important changes made by the Building Safety Act. The talk will also draw attention to changes to the Regulatory Reform Order 2005 as they relate to flat front doors.

  • The ongoing fire safety crisis
  • The Building Safety Fund
  • The Building Safety Act
  • The changes to the Regulatory Reform Order

Justin Bates, Barrister, Landmark Chambers

  • What is proposed
  • How likely various elements are to be taken into law
  • What the consequences are likely to be for the sector

David Smith, Partner, JMW Solicitors
