Announcing our Conference: Making Housing Healthier: Being Smarter About Addressing Risks in the PRS

19th July 2018 Training

Conference at The Birmingham Repertory Theatre, 16 October 2018

At a time when the government wants to tackle ‘rogue landlords’ in the private rented sector and has given local authorities increased powers to do so, there continue to be reductions in funding. This means local authorities have to be smarter if they are to ensure they address the conditions that most adversely affect the health and safety of occupiers.

There are other issues facing practitioners dealing with this sector. The most common cause of homelessness is the end of a PRS tenancy and the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 means PRS housing teams have an increased role in preventing homelessness. Building on the success of previous events, the conference aims to help with these challenges.

Chaired by Dr Stephen Battersby presentations will include a legal update, legal gaps and the impact of the Grenfell disaster, new research and Worked Examples to support HHSRS assessments, insights into the First-tier Tribunal, input from Public Health England, problems and solutions at a local level and more.

Pre-tendered questions to the panel are welcome. To see the full programme and to book the early bird price until the end of August, follow this link.
