In the third webinar in Chambers' series focused on Appeals in the First-Tier Tribunal Property Chamber, Trinity Housing Law and Regulatory barristers James McHugh and Morgan Brien examine Improvement Notices.

The webinar, link below, will be of interest to a wide range of Landlords, Local Authorities and their advisers.

The slides accompanying the webinar can be downloaded here.

The practical session covers:

  • What improvement notices are
  • The circumstances in which they can be served
  • The technical requirements for service under the relevant provisions
  • The consequences for breach
  • The procedure for appealing improvement notices

James' Housing law practice includes a wide variety of litigation including possession proceedings, anti-social behaviour injunctions, tenancy deposits, unlawful eviction and disrepair.

Morgan's practice covers all aspects of housing law, including landlord & tenant disputes, anti-social behaviour, unlawful evictions and disrepair claims. He has appeared in closure order appeals; injunction applications and committal hearings. Morgan also has experience of dealing with Housing matters with a criminal and regulatory involvement, including offences relating to improvement notices and houses in multiple occupation. Morgan was appointed to the Attorney General's regional panel of counsel in 2018.

Members of the Trinity Housing team can assist with enquiries relating to urgent housing disrepair issues, residential possession proceedings during the coronavirus pandemic, interpretation of the Coronavirus Act and associated Guidance for Landlords (including Housing Associations), Tenants and Local Authorities. The team can also assist with updates regarding on and offline court procedures, including facilities to deal with remote hearings.
