We cannot hope to cover all the detail but we will give you an overview of the key take-aways from the past 6 months.

Topics Covered:

  • Your quick guide to issuing a possession claim under the new rules on possession proceedings
  • Case law update covering notable ASB, leasehold and housing cases in the Courts
  • ASTs and section 21: where are we now?
