Essential Housing Law Training - New training for 2023

December 14, 2022

This year, we will be running our popular Essential Housing Law for Student Advisors training, and a new Essential Law training for Student Accommodation Managers. See below for full details.

Essential Housing Law for Student Advisors – 28th February and 1st March 2023 - Online

This popular two-day course is suitable for new housing advisors with little or no experience of landlord/tenant law, established advisors who wish to review and update existing knowledge, and those more experienced generic advisors who are keen to develop expertise in this aspect of housing law.

The course is primarily aimed at members of University and student union staff who as part of their day-to-day remit, give housing advice to students living, or about to live, in private rented housing.  Student sabbatical officers and others that offer housing advice to private tenants may also find the course beneficial.

This interactive course will be held over Zoom, and primarily presented by Anthony Gold Solicitors who are leading experts in Housing Law. We are also pleased to welcome guest speakers from the Tenancy Deposit Scheme Adjudication Services, Environmental Health and Tenancy Relations.  There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion.

The course will cover a number of issues relating to landlord and tenant law including different types of letting contracts, disrepair, deposit protection, houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) and rules on ending tenancies including the s21 Procedure. The course will also include details on the Tenant Fees Act 2019 and the (Homes) Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018.

NEW - Essential Housing Law for Student Accommodation Managers – 29th and 30th of March – Online

This course is a new offering from the University of London aimed at those managing or working in student accommodation – for example, student halls operated by universities, or private providers of purpose-built student accommodation. The course is suitable for new members of staff as well as those who are more experienced and looking to further develop their legal knowledge.

The aim of the course is to give an overview of the legal issues affecting providers of student accommodation. We will cover housing law topics such as issuing the appropriate types of agreement (licenses vs tenancies), legal and health and safety and fire safety obligations, fees and disciplinary penalty charges, legal issues with short-term lets and non-student occupiers. We will also cover Equality Act obligations, GDPR and student wellbeing.

The two-day course will primarily be presented by Anthony Gold solicitors over Zoom, with contribution from staff at the University of London. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion.
