SHLA are delighted to inform its members that they will hear from Karen Buck MP; Giles Peaker, Partner at Anthony Gold Solicitors; Andrew Dymond, Barrister at 4-5 Gray's Inn and Michele Glazebrook, Chartered Environmental Health Officer and Director of Glazebrook Associates on the Homes 2018 Act.

The event will take place at Trowers & Hamlins in London and there will be a video conference link to their Birmingham, Manchester and Exeter offices.

On 20 December 2018, the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Bill received its Royal Assent becoming the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018. It came into force on 20 March 2019. The Act started its life as a Private Members’ Bill introduced by Ms Karen Buck. The Act is a key piece of legislation for our members.

The seminar and panel format will facilitate discussion on the Act, its provisions and how it will impact (and, indeed, perhaps how it is already impacting) on social housing providers and their tenants.
