This breakfast briefing looks at what the year ahead has in store following the Queens’ Speech in December 2019. The Government’s agenda for 2020 will make for an interesting (and busy) year ahead! This seminar will bring you right up to date on the priorities for the Government and our best guess at the future trends of housing management and all that goes with managing properties in the current legal landscape.
The session will combine current issues and those on the horizon, including an idea of where we think policy proposals and changes in case-law are likely to take us. From the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act roll out to the abolition of Section 21, this session will guarantee you are up to date.
