Earlier this month, David Smith officially came on board as a new contributor to our Housing Professionals forum on RIAMS Communities.
If you have attended our Housing conferences in the past, David may be familiar to you. At our conference in 2019, ‘Housing Standards and Tenancy Reform in the PRS’ and our 2018 conference, ‘Making Housing Healthier: Being Smarter About Addressing Risks in the PRS’, David provided a very well-received legal update focusing on key changes in statute and case law around these issues. David has also made a number of TV appearances due to his expert knowledge of landlord and tenant and property litigation in the residential sector.
In his first legal digest for RIAMS Communities, David highlighted an Upper Tribunal case from March of this year which established the principle that a local authority can require a landlord to undertake relevant training as part of the conditions of Part 3 selective licence under the Housing Act 2004.
