Watch the webinar replay for our 2020 Housing Law Conference hosted by the Housing Management team

Our Housing Law Conference launched #HJhousing week with an interactive virtual Zoom event, hosted by our Housing Management team. The session covered the impact of COVID-19 on residential tenancies and an interactive discussion on empty properties. The two sessions delivered are summarised below.

The impact of COVID-19 on residential tenancies | Bethan Gladwyn, Head of Housing Management
This main plenary topic, considers possession claims, how (if) the courts are getting back on top, how judges are looking/are likely to look at COVID-19 related debt and arrears, the impact on ASB and the impact on meeting support needs during lockdown.

Empty properties case study | Rebecca Rees and the Housing Management team

We have posted the webinar recording above, for you to watch at your leisure.
