Landlord & Tenant Webinar - Possession Proceedings


Trinity Housing law barrister, Alice Richardson starts the first of a series of three Trinity Landlord and Tenant focused webinars by reviewing the updated guidance and regulations for possession proceedings in light of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

The webinar, entitled 'Possession Proceedings… or Not', follows a successful live Landlord and Tenant update webinar held in November 2020.

Alice's session covers:

  • Extended Notice Periods
  • Notice Period Exceptions
  • Procedure
  • Enforcement Proceedings

In the further webinars in the series, Vilma Vodanovic examines what can go wrong in exercising Break Clauses and Tom Tyson discusses Forfeiture and Rights of Entry by Landlords.

Please note that the content of the webinar is for information only and based on the circumstances at the time of delivery, rather than formal legal advice. Contact Trinity Chambers if you have a specific legal query.
