Defending Actions for Disrepair and Claims under the Environmental Protection Act 1990

Defending Actions for Disrepair and Claims under the Environmental Protection Act 1990

Dealing with disrepair claims raised by tenants can be a time consuming and costly exercise. This seminar aims to provide a practical guide to dealing with these types of claims and those brought by tenants under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (“EPA”), as well as notices served by Local Authorities, including steps that can be taken by a landlord to minimise the risk of a claim being brought, and how to respond effectively to a claim when it is raised. The seminar gives practical pointers for resolving such claims quickly and cost effectively. Housing officers and surveyors/maintenance team members will certainly benefit from attending this briefing.

Topics Covered:

• Tackling Disrepair & EPA Claims: Evidence Gathering and File Management
• The Law Relating to Disrepair Claims
• The Law Relating to EPA
• An overview of Local Authority powers under the Housing Act 2004

Lee Russell– Solicitor, Devonshires
