Chaired by Paul Spaven of TFT, this event will provide a one-stop shop for all your essential legal, technical and valuation guidance. Bringing together leading industry speakers, it provides you with a unique opportunity for you to understand legal essentials, refresh your practical knowledge and learn about the client perspective.
This year’s breakout sessions once again offer delegates the chance to tailor their agenda to best suit their specific areas of interest, with a choice of content focussed on mechanical and electrical installations and dilapidations valuations. Plus enjoy the post-event Drinks Reception where you can network with colleagues and our expert speakers.
Join 400+ attendees to receive the very latest updates and ensure you remain at the forefront of this complex area of practice.
Tailor your day to best meet your specific professional development requirements by choosing one of the two breakout sessions:
A focus on consequential claims for loss of rent
Considering the legal and surveying perspectives, Nicholas Taggart (Landmark Chambers) and Richard Kay (Beckett and Kay Chartered Surveyors) will focus on consequential claims for loss of rent, including practical valuation problems in assessing loss of rent claims, the legal basis for claiming loss of rent, analysis of section 18, and marketing periods, incentives and the operative cause of the loss.
Mechanical and electrical update
Dr David Arnold (Troup Bywaters and Anders) will deliver the mechanical and electrical engineering update, exploring common issues and how they can be best resolved, as well as the reliability of economic lifetables, why M&E dilapidations are different and whether one should repair or replace in the case of a major dilapidated M&E plant.
Industry leading speakers include:
You’ve told us that networking is an important part of your conference experience.
