Since the advent of the Homelessness Reduction Act, in particular the goal of sustaining a tenancy, sound knowledge of landlord and tenant law have become a crucial skill set, where not enough attention has been focused in the past by homelessness case workers.
This course provides that bedrock of skills.
Modules covered on this course:
- Security of tenure issues – tenancies, licence, tied accommodation, joint tenancies and how to untangle the complex area of sub-tenancies

- Deposit protection
- Dealing with harassment and illegal eviction
- Notices seeking possession and the 21 factors that render a s21 notice invalid
