Housing law issues can be wide-ranging and involve dealing with several areas of the law. This handbook:
explains areas of landlord and tenant most relevant to housing, including the basic principles in relation to tenure and mortgage repossession
covers new ground in addressing housing where the immigration status of the person seeking accommodation precludes or restricts the provision of accommodation by a local housing authority but permits provision by a public authority under other legislation
explains other routes into housing under the National Health Service Act 2006, Mental Health Act 2983, and Children Act 1989.
In addition, the Housing Law Handbook includes an overview of the numerous enforcement measures available to tackle anti-social behaviour, information on dealing with unhealthy housing under the Housing Act 2004, and remedies for disrepair. The handbook will also be indispensable for anyone involved in housing management when dealing with possession claims.
