The government’s reform of the rental sector includes the proposed abolition of Section 21 in the Housing Act 1988. What does this mean for landlords? Will they be able to serve a Section 8 instead and under which circumstances? There is much uncertainty on where this area of the law may go, but those working in the residential landlord and tenant sector must remain at the forefront of these changes in order to best advise their clients.

Attend this seminar to gain a better understanding of:

  • Proposed legislative changes
  • Section 8 vs Section 21 notices
  • Dealing with difficult tenants and rent arrears
  • Regaining possession

The published time is when registration opens. The seminar will begin 30 minutes later.
