Recovering Rent During and After Covid-19
Wednesday 22 July, 10:00-11:00, Zoom
Due to high demand, we are repeating the Recovering Rent During and After Covid-19 legal training session.
This session will look at the changes to notice periods for your SST, SSST and mid-market rent properties.
Jim Bauld, TC Young Partner, will lead the session, providing advice on serving notices, proceeding with abandonment, raising actions and evictions during the pandemic.
Jim will also look at policy changes you should consider when dealing with arrears now, and after, Covid-19 and will provide an update on how the Scottish Courts and Tribunal Service will deal with actions sisted during, and raised after, the pandemic.
If you work in housing management, or deal with arrears and notices, then this training is for you.
Rates start at £49 for SFHA members and £79 for non-members.
The Transition to a Low Carbon Scotland
Wednesday 29 July, 11:00-12:00, Zoom
What’s the role for housing associations in the move to a low carbon Scotland?
In order for us to meet these ambitious targets, significant transformation will be required, across all sectors of society, changing everyday life for us all, from how we travel, how we heat our homes, and how our infrastructure is designed.
Housing associations are already contributing to the fight against climate change by meeting strict energy efficiency targets set by the Scottish Government. Housing associations and co-operatives have the most energy efficient homes in Scotland and a strong track record in installing renewable and low carbon technologies, but what does the move to a low carbon Scotland mean for you and your tenants?
Join SFHA’s Policy Lead Stacey Dingwall and Aoife Hutton, Climate Change Officer at Keep Scotland Beautiful, to explore the role of housing associations in the transition to a low-carbon Scotland.
