Housing Management Newsletter – Spring 2016

Welcome to the Spring 2016 Edition of our Housing Management Newsletter.

This bumper edition includes an article on the use of mandatory grounds for possession, including an article about successful case study using the new Mandatory Anti-Social Behaviour Ground 7A.

This edition also includes an article detailing the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 and news of the new Right to Rent provisions under Section 22 of the Immigration Act 2014. We have an update on Deprivation of Liberty in the context of social housing and articles on all you need to know in respect of Section 21 notices, changes to tenancy deposit scheme arrangements and also a piece on how we can help you navigate unprecedented change in the Social Housing Sector.

There is no doubt that these are challenging times for our Sector, however our team has been busy helping our clients navigate their way through the current challenges – both in the Court room and in the Board room.

Happy reading

Partner & Social Housing Sector Leader
