About the training
There has been a recent focus on the role of Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) in dealing with domestic abuse amongst tenants or in one of their properties, particularly during the pandemic and various lockdowns. A legal definition of domestic abuse was introduced in April 2019 and guidance has been published around what landlords should and shouldn’t do in managing tenancies impacted by domestic abuse.
In this session, we will look at current housing legislation and discuss the legal obligations on RSLs to take action against perpetrators or to assist victims. We will also consider how tenancies impacted by domestic abuse interplay with other housing issues, such as court actions for rent arrears or allocations. Finally, we will consider how an RSL may offer practical assistance to victims of abuse, whether they are tenants or occupiers.
Who should attend?
