Possession Proceedings-where are we now?

Registration for this webinar is now closed, please contact seminars@devonshires.co.uk for more information or to join our waiting list.

The temporary stay on possession claims has now been lifted but the impact on the Courts is likely to be felt for many months. In this Webinar we will go over the changes to the notice requirements on many statutory grounds for possession. We will further consider what landlords need to do to get their outstanding and new possession cases back on track and how the Courts will be prioritising and processing those claims.
