'A wonderfully lucid, comprehensive and practical introduction to the principles of housing law. This book clears a path through the thickets of case-law and legislation and enables the reader to identify the rights and responsibilities of all kinds of residential occupier. No lawyer or adviser should be without it.' --John Gallagher, Shelter Legal Services

'This is a superb reference book covering all aspects of housing law and any adviser or legal practitioner acquiring the book will have a complete housing resource at their disposal ... This book will be of immeasurable benefit to anyone who provides, or aims to provide, housing advice within [the voluntary and private] sectors.' --Adviser

Format: Paperback
This book is an essential reference book for people working in the housing field whether as a solicitor or in housing advice. The book covers aspects such as definitions of various tenancies & tenant's security of tenure. Issues facing tenants like disrepair, sub-letting, assingment, succession and the all too common problem by unscrupulous private landlords in getting deposits back once the tenancy has ended.
There is an informative section on steps leading to possession hearings and defences tenants can use against harrassment & unlawful eviction from landlords. A handy section of housing benefit entitlement & who can access help with their rent & challenging HB decisions.
The section on homelessness applications is very informative for advising clients approaching their local authorites when making a homeless application. The information around homelessness applications & homeless test & decisions is interspersed with case law (as is the entire book), which is changing all the time.
I could go on & on about this book but essentially, no housing advisor should be without this book.

SECOND EDITION- review

INVOLVED IN HOUSING LAW? HERE'S A COMPLETE HOUSING LAW RESOURCE FOR PROFESSIONAL ADVISERS

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

Housing is a fundamental need. So when things go wrong, few problems in the spectrum of civil law can cause more upheaval, unpleasantness and distress. The issues that frequently confront housing lawyers can be formidable - and if you're a practitioner in this field, having this new second edition of `Housing Law' provides the advice and guidance you need, in a clear, readable and convenient format.

Published by the admirable, dedicated and very thorough Legal Action Group, `Housing Law' takes a practical and knowledgeable approach to just about all the common problems you are likely to deal with as an adviser, from proceedings in court...to tactics...to how to challenge decisions and obtain remedies.

The author, a solicitor and lecturer in this area of law has brought specialist expertise and years of experience to the task of producing this book, which has already established itself as an essential resource for all those working in, or interested in, housing issues, including students and academics as well as practitioners.

Since the first edition came out in 2008, a number of new developments have emerged, which are dealt with comprehensively within this 1,000+ page volume. For example, the implications of the Localism Act 2011 and the Equality Act 2010 are dealt with and there is an expanded section on the Children Act 1989.
