  3. Equality Act and Public Law Defences to Possession Claims: SEMINAR

    • Location(s): London
    • Course Date(s): 20 Apr 2017
      • Duration: 1 day(s)
      • Level: Intermediate
      • CPD: 5

    Price starts at: £120.00

    Increasing numbers of tenants in the social/council housing sector have comparatively limited security of tenure (introductory tenants, starter tenants, demoted tenants, and non-secure tenants). Others can face possession proceedings on mandatory grounds, including ground 8 and the 'absolute' ground for possession based on serious anti-social behaviour.

    This practical, 'hands on' seminar highlights two additional lines of defence - public law arguments based on the landlord's decision making process, and defences under the 2010 Equality Act - which are often successful in practice despite the decisions of the higher Courts about proportionality defences.

    N.B The seminar advertised for 22 March 2017 with Mark Robinson is now being held on 20 April with Tony Martin.
