Alice Kinder, pensions and employment solicitor takes on the role in representing and supporting more than 5,500 legal professionals located across Birmingham and the Greater Midlands.
The seminars took place on 21 March 2013 in Birmingham and 26 March in London.
The conferences guided housing professionals through new developments in legislation and discussed issues currently impacting the sector, such as welfare reforms and tenure changes. The sessions also analysed the practical consequences of these changes and gave guidance for housing practitioners on how to respond effectively.
Helen Tucker, partner, and Jenny Francis, senior associate at Anthony Collins Solicitors, delivered interactive workshops which summarised current case law and address the effect of the Human Rights Act on repossession proceedings. Emma Duke, associate, led a session in Birmingham on tenancy agreements and suggested changes to take account of welfare reforms and green deal issues. Other speakers delivered updates on issues such as the new anti-social behaviour reforms.
Helen Tucker said: “It is now more important than ever for housing professionals to keep up to date with the latest information and developments in housing law. The workshops raised awareness of important legal changes in the sector and provide housing practitioners with valuable advice on how to deal with practical issues.”
CIH conference and seminar organiser Patrick Grace said: “These events provide the perfect opportunity for housing professionals to gain well-informed legal advice, supporting and allowing them to prepare for significant changes in the sector.”
