We’ve partnered with Birketts Solicitors to design this bespoke session for our network.

We’ve recently witnessed a surge in the number of disrepair claims brought against social landlords. These claims often involve defending Environmental Protection Act prosecutions in the Magistrates Court. Since the new Fitness for Human Habitation Act came into effect for all existing tenancies on 20 March 2020, the current influx is likely to turn into a flood of claims. To help tackle your incoming claims, and future-proof your organisation against the possibility of even more, we’ve teamed up with Birketts to deliver this interactive one-day training course.

We’ll also learn what RPs can do now to assist with minimising disrepair as well as strategic, longer term solutions by using of technology to maximise the prospects of successfully defending a disrepair case.


Birketts Solicitors will run this session on behalf of SEC. Their expert team are continuously advising clients on disrepair claims and have a great deal of experience defending them.
