On Tuesday 23 February, PRS Mediation and Landlord Action will run ‘Rent Arrears, Courts and Evictions – the latest for property professionals’ FREE webinar, aimed at helping landlords and property professionals with alternative solutions to help with rent arrears, possession claims and evictions, given the recent government announcement of extending the ban on bailiff for a further 6 weeks.
The private rented sector is still in crisis when it comes to rent arrears, possession claims and evictions – and it is set to get worse before it gets better. Although the courts are open for business, they are facing a huge backlog of cases with some landlords reporting a wait of up to 12 months before possession orders are made. Evictions are still not taking place until at least 21 February 2021 – and new ‘Breathing Space’ legislation is due to come into effect in May 2021, given tenants circumstances in which they can claim respite from debts being enforced against them.
In this webinar, Paul Shamplina will meet with leading legal experts to look at the latest news, and the alternatives available to landlords to regain possession of their properties and recover rent arrears, without the delay and cost of legal proceedings.
Our speakers, hosted by Head of Property for Hamilton Fraser, Paul Shamplina, will include:
- Mike Morgan – Legal Division Manager, Head of HF Assist. Mike leads HF Assist and the PRS Mediation. A qualified solicitor and previously the Director of Dispute Resolution at the Tenancy Deposit Scheme for over 13 years.
- Julie Ford – PRS Mediator with over 25 years’ experience with working in the private rented sector. Julie now works as a consultant, supporting landlords and letting agents who have problem tenants, especially those with rent arrears.
Ahead of the webinar, Mike Morgan, Legal Division Manager, Head of HF Assist, says:
“All is far from well in the private rented sector, with fears about increasing rent arrears and eviction claims swamping the courts being just the tip of the iceberg. Watch this webinar to find all the latest news – including the good news about alternatives available to landlords to regain possession of their properties, and recover rent arrears, without the delay and cost of legal proceedings. “
