Fitness for Human Habitation masterclass (Birmingham)

Capsticks invite you to join us for our upcoming series of Fitness for Human Habitation masterclasses.

Our disrepair team has recently witnessed a surge in the number of disrepair claims brought against our social landlord clients. These claims often involve defending Environmental Protection Act (EPA) prosecutions in the Magistrates Court and with new Fitness for Human Habitation legislation due to take effect in March 2019, the current influx is likely to turn into a flood of claims.

To help you prepare for the changes ahead, our expert disrepair team will talk you through current issues including:
• Handling EPA prosecutions – process and dos and don’ts
• Instructing the right surveyor on Disrepair/Fitness for Human Habitation claims - getting it right the first time
• Tackling disrepair/Fitness for Human Habitation claims in the county court - all you need to know
• An analysis of the Fitness for Human Habitation legislation – a look at what to expect

These seminars include interactive sessions that will offer you the opportunity to get involved in discussions about topical issues, to put questions to our expert legal team and to network with your peers and colleagues.

Who should attend?
This seminar will be of particular interest to surveyors, maintenance managers and asset management and officers.
