Please join us for this full-day training session, which is designed to provide a detailed exploration of key issues facing registered providers in court proceedings. Please note, this session will concentrate on the assured tenancy regime and will not deal with secure tenancies.

This interactive one-day seminar aims to equip officers working within the housing sector with a strong foundation knowledge of the following topics:

  • A detailed discussion of issues linked to rent possession proceedings such as the pre-action protocol and the various grounds for possession;
  • An in-depth look at anti-social behaviour, including injunctions, committal applications and possession proceedings;
  • Drafting effective Notices Seeking Possession;
  • An overview of possible defences to possession proceedings, including mental capacity issues, the Equality Act and housing disrepair; and
  • A practical session on the drafting of witness statements and what to include in them.
