Housing Law Casebook, now in its seventh edition, has been an indispensable reference book for housing lawyers for over twenty years. Its main aim is to make housing law easier and more accessible – for those who are advising about housing problems, for those who are representing clients in court and for those who are studying housing law.
It contains hundreds of case summaries organised by subject, with subdivisions within each area of housing law. Extensive cross-referencing, tables and indexing enable busy practitioners to identify and navigate the relevant cases quickly and efficiently. This seventh edition has been re-structured, and the chapters re-ordered, to make it even easier to find relevant cases.
This edition is up to date to include the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 and the effects of the Care Act 2014 and Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 and covers:
•housing and human rights
•tenancies and licenses at common law
•security of tenure: requirements, exceptions, variation and succession
•possession claims: grounds, notices, types of tenancies, procedure
•rights and obligations of all tenants: injunctions, committal, disrepair, nuisance, harassment and unlawful eviction
•owner occupiers: long leases and mortgage possession proceedings
•allocations and homelessness
