Residential Landlord & Tenant - An Update on Contentious Issues
‘The private rented sector is an important and growing part of our housing market. It has overtaken the social rented sector in terms of size and is now the second largest tenure with 1.9 million properties housing 4 million households in England.’
But, the relationship between landlords and their residential tenants remains one fraught with potential tensions and difficulties for both parties. Sweeping legislative changes and continually evolving case law make this area of law a minefield for the unwary.
This virtual classroom seminar is designed to provide an essential guide to all property lawyers involved in potentially contentious residential tenancy matters who wish to keep up to speed in this fast-changing area of law.
