  9. Equality Act and Public Law Defences to Possession Claims

    • Location(s): Resource for London
    • Course Date(s): 26 Feb 2020
      • Duration: 1 day(s)
      • Level: Intermediate
      • CPD: 5

    Price starts at: £170.00

    Increasing numbers of occupiers in the social/council housing sector have limited security of tenure (eg introductory tenants, starter tenants, demoted tenants, non-secure tenants and those without a right of succession). Others can face possession proceedings on mandatory grounds, including ground 8 and the 'absolute' ground for possession based on serious anti-social behaviour.

    This course deals with 3 possible lines of defence available when an occupier cannot argue about reasonableness, and where the landlord has followed the correct process under housing law to regain possession.

    The focus of this course is on public law defences based on flaws in the landlord's decision-making processes, such as failing to have regard to the Public Sector duty in s149 of the Equality Act. The training considers the duty to have regard to the best interests of children and the extent to which this may impact on lawful decision making, as well as whether and when a claim can be defended if the landlord is evicting a disabled occupier for a reason which is arguably related to their disability.
