This talk was taken by housing barrister Peter Marcus of Zenith Chambers, always one of our most popular speakers.
Peter talks, not only about gas safety, but also about the other utilities such as electricity, considers issues of access and looks at the new legislation which has come into force recently.
Find out more about his talk in the video clip:
Claims by tenants, either for compensation or by way of a defence to possession proceedings which may delay the eviction of non paying tenants
Penalties levied by Local Authorities under their new powers – which can be very expensive. Or they may decide to prosectute.
Claims for Rent Repayment Orders, which can be made by both tenants and Local Authorities in the First Tier Tribunal, which can be for up to 12 months worth of rent.

A: It should do, this is a standard WordPress website. However, if you have a problem contact us via our Contact page. If the problem cannot be resolved, you can claim your money back under our guarantee.
Q: I am based in Wales, is the course suitable for me?
A: Some of the content will be suitable but note that many of the changes discussed, such as the Tenant Fees act and the section 21 Deregulation Act changes do not apply in Wales. The course is aimed more at an English audience but there will be parts which are relevant for you.
Q: I am based in Scotland, is the course suitable for me?
A: No, Scotland has a different legal system, as does Northern Ireland. The course is only really suitable for landlords and agents managing property in England (and maybe Wales) UK and for their advisers.

A: If you want to watch the conference course videos, yes. One of the videos, David Cox’s talk has been published on Landlord Law for members but the other talks will not be added to the Landlord Law site for members until May 2020 at the earliest. You will already have access to the bonus content though. NB See the Q on discounts below.
Q: Can I ask questions?
A: The course does not include any ‘one to one’ advice element. However, if you are a Landlord Law member you will be able to ask Tessa questions via the members’ forum.
Q: I prefer not to pay online – can I pay by BACS or cheque?
A: No. We only accept payment via our online system. However, you can elect to pay by either credit / debit card or pay pal.
Q: If I get the six months version but then decide I need more time, can I upgrade?

A: Yes, Business Level members get an automatic 20% discount and Basic Level members get a 10% discount so long as you are logged in at the time of purchase. You can also offset your points.
