Dealing with Informal Occupation

Over the last five or six years of economic and political uncertainty and turbulence, many landlords have tended to prioritise income over other aspects of property management. They may often have been prepared to accept occupiers of less than ideal quality, and to overlook the fact that terms of occupation have not been regularised. This is understandable in the short-term, but may lead to problems later on, as regards identifying what sums may be recoverable from the occupier, and ultimately the ability to recover possession. This module considers how occupation can be documented quickly and economically for short-term, low-value lettings, in the light of guidance from recent caselaw on the characteristics of licences to occupy and tenancies at will. It will also consider strategies to untangle the knot when problems have arisen.

Tenant Insolvency & Landlords’ Rights

There are many different kinds of insolvency procedure and while some are highly restrictive of the actions a landlord might wish to take, others are not. It is not enough to settle for the information that the tenant has ‘gone bust’ and simply wait to see what payment, if any, emerges. Landlords and their advisers need to be aware of the forms insolvency and pre-insolvency procedures may take, what options remain open and the effective routes to maximising payment of rent and other sums, or obtaining possession if required. This recording takes a practical approach to the issues raised by tenant insolvency.

Landlords' Consents

In dealing with landlords’ consents the focus is usually on what is, or is not reasonable on the landlord’s part. This module will consider the up-to-date caselaw on this aspect. It is important to be aware of practical and procedural factors which have an influence on the outcome, whether or not a disputed application ends up in court. Going about things the wrong way can seriously undermine your negotiating position.

The CPA's Annual Law Reform Lecture 2023

There is a groundswell of cross-party parliamentary support for such reforms, particularly associated with the drive to support the delivery of housing. The Government has consulted on amending the compensation provisions associated with the future prospect of planning permission and appropriate alternative development, where acquiring authorities could seek directions to cap the value paid to landowners at an amount at or above existing use value. We wait to see if the Government will introduce new clauses on this to the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill. Whether it makes the Bill or not, there is political support for change, if not now, then next time. Meanwhile, the CPA has polled its members on the Government’s proposal and there is little support for anything that undermines market value.
