The focus will be on active learning, collaboration and practical problem solving.

The workshop will cover:

  • The latest on the extension of the RTB to Housing Associations
  • Cost floor level calculations
  • Interpreting and applying exclusions from the RTB/RTA
  • Demolition notices
  • Latest tribunal cases
  • Reducing fraud and pushing the boundaries
  • Exchange of good practice
  • Discussion of options available for complex cases
  • Outline and discussion on sale of leasehold extensions on RTB leases

This course is suitable for those with some basic understanding of the right to buy/right to acquire, but who would like to understand the area in greater depth and develop their practice.
