International Summit: Delivering Land Assembly - UK Dilemmas, Global Solutions

Every country has unique challenges in the modern world. The successful delivery of housing, modern services and infrastructure, regenerating city and town centres, as well as business communities, all are common ambitions and in every case, the acquisition of land and rights are the vital ingredients. Each country and each scheme also has a unique set of dilemmas with the potential to frustrate and disable and whilst no one country has the magic ingredients to overcome such obstacles, we can learn and potentially find solutions from the global market place. The key is to understand what solutions work in different jurisdictions and then consider whether the solutions can be readily applied elsewhere. This is how best practice evolves and matures and this event will focus on this worldwide. It will unquestionably be of value for practitioners wherever they might be based.

CPO Valuation Seminar and Workshops

Valuing land and property for compulsory purchase compensation is a step into a hypothetical world: where land is taken, where some land is taken, and no land taken. It has own language and terms: severance and injurious affection - with potential for ransom, and planning assumptions. Its own set of case law, dictating what valuers are to do. Plus, increasing expectations on valuers to get their valuation right first time. This programme provides a thorough review of the valuation best practice and the underlying methodologies in respect of compulsory purchase and its compensation.

Understanding Commercial Property Management

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.

Rent Review and Lease Renewal

The course will give an overview of 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 course will look with particular reference to the increasingly well-used PACT scheme.
