Giving Evidence in a Judicial Environment

Do you Think Giving Evidence is Easy?

You may be a frequent flyer or a novice, but never ever be ill prepared before entering a judicial environment. It only takes one flippant remark, a comment without suitable foundations, or one biased statement and at best you will be digging yourself and your evidence out of the quick sand. At worst you could leave the witness box with your reputation and expert witness career in tatters. The same is true of written evidence. This event is hugely relevant to anyone who appears in any judicial environment. The speakers have been invited because of their skills and experience across Landlord & Tenant, rating and CPO practice. 

Virtual Seminar (2 November).

Rewriting Lease Terms – What Can be Achieved at Renewal

Tenants are increasingly looking to rewrite leases, to reflect the impact of COVID, or simply to give flexibility to react to an every-changing world. One opportunity to do this is lease renewal, and a number of recent county court decisions have given valuable guidance on whether flexible terms are available in this way, whether it is a change to rent arrangements, a shorter term or insertion of a break option, a pandemic rent suspension clause, or another of the range of terms which tenants are now asking for. This session will outline the approach which the courts are taking on these issues and others, which in turn sets the parameters for negotiation.

Virtual Seminar (23 February).
