Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) powers have long been an effective tool in the armoury of acquiring authorities to drive forward the delivery of transformational housing, infrastructure and urban regeneration projects.

The introduction of the RICS practice statement 'Surveyors Advising In Respect Of Compulsory Purchase and Compensation', and repeated judicial criticism of expert witnesses appearing before the Upper Tribunal and courts, creates an imperative for all practitioners, to carefully consider how they might avoid, or resolve disputes, without resort to litigation, whenever possible. This is a must attend event.

The course will give an overview of the two procedures, and look at recurrent issues such as whether the hypothetical lease should include a break option, what should be the assumed length of term, and whether a ‘headline rent’ is effectively excluded.

The Practicalities of the Property Administrators Role.
Commercial leases are the foundation and essence of property management. Anyone who works in this area needs to be familiar with what they say, what they mean, and how to work them. In this course we explain the key commercial terms of a commercial lease, and focus on the problems the attending delegates have encountered. It is ideal for administrators who have not been trained in the nuances of property - administrators, PA's, secretaries, accounts personnel, facilities managers, newly qualified and APC candidates.
London (1 November).
Best rating practice cannot be achieved without understanding case law. This event is far more than a case law review. A panel of leading lawyers and practitioners will review important and topical cases and explore the nuances of what is best and effective practice in the light of these decisions.

If you want an easy life, you don’t go into commercial property management!

Whichever of your many hats you have on - manager, adviser or negotiator - you can’t do without the relevant current awareness you will get from this programme.
