David Smith, property law specialist and Partner at JMW Solicitors delivered an emergency masterclass moderated by Rajeev Nayyar, MD of Fixflo, to help property professionals understand these requirements in practical terms. These includes:
- proceedings are not to automatically resume - so how can landlords make sure their possession claims resume as soon as possible by submitting a 'reactivation notice'? What information needs to be presented in this document?
- a requirement for landlords to actively enquire about the tenant's circumstances and how the pandemic might have impacted them financially and otherwise - what do landlords need to do to fulfil this condition?
- court hearing scheduling changes - what levels of delay are expected?
- landlords to produce the full arrears history in advance rather than at the hearing - how will this change your existing possession claim?
