CPO - Talking Heads - Inaugural Meeting

The HS2 Land and Property Review: How will it improve relations between promoters and claimant advisors?

The principle behind talking heads is a simple one; how to stay abreast of key issues in the industry.  10 months ago we could meet for lunch, go to events; but COVID stopped all this.  A solution is now at hand with a new style event and format. Join the lunchtime discussion 'CPO - Talking Heads'

Virtual (26 January).

Service Charge Practice in 2021

Service charges are a frequent area for dispute between tenants and their landlords. The emergence of the RICS Professional Statement in 2019 now dictates the standards by which chartered surveyors are expected to adhere, but since they form best practice, they will be seen as the benchmark standard by the courts for everyone involved in the industry. How is the Code working in the marketplace, what lessons should practitioners be reminded of, and what special considerations need to be focused upon due to the disruption caused by a COVID world?

Restrictive Covenants: Ignore At Your Peril

Covenants restricting development on land are a perennial thorn in the side for developers. They can either restrict development entirely or restrict its extent, and ignoring or breaching them can have far reaching consequences. This webinar will discuss what is the law and practice in dealing with restrictive covenants following the recent Supreme Court case of Alexander Devine Children's Cancer Trust (Respondent) v Housing Solutions Ltd?

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 - also PA's, secretaries, accounts personnel, facilities managers, newly qualified and APC candidates.
