Housing Co-operatives: Getting on, getting along

Housing Co-operatives: Getting on, getting along

A seminar aimed at fully mutual Housing Co-operatives to review common issues affecting governance and housing management – including possession claims.

Presenters from the Housing Management and Banking, Governance and Corporate teams of Devonshires Solicitors will speak on a selection of the frequently occurring issues Housing Co-operatives are presented with, ways they can be resolved and how to anticipate and avoid them in the first instance. There will be an overview of the governance framework for Housing Co-operatives and discussion of common problems and a look at best practice. We will then look at tenancy management issues for Co-operatives with a focus on possession claims.

Topics Covered:

  • Governance – legal framework, AGMs and other meetings
  • Governance – dealing with rogue members
  • Housing Management – breach of tenancy and pre-action considerations
  • Housing Management – possession claims and likely defences
