The Encyclopedia of Housing Law and Practice provides the housing lawyer with the widest possible range of information about housing law and legal policy:
- Reproduces the text of all relevant legislation, beginning with the principal Housing Acts, followed by the principal Rent Acts and then other legislation - including parts of other Acts which touch on housing issues, such as the Immigration Acts 2014 and 2016 and the Right to Rent provisions
- Includes clear, in-depth annotations which explain the statutory provisions and comment on all appropriate judicial decisions from the Upper Tribunal to the Supreme Court and, where relevant, the ECJ and ECHR
- Includes over 500 statutory instruments with annotations as appropriate
- Provides selected circulars, guidance and other relevant materials, many of which are difficult to find online owing to governmental archiving policies
- Includes a Key Issues section which explains the most common concepts in housing law
- Keeps you up to date with developments through four updating releases a year.
- Includes a new Coronavirus Special Briefing detailing all the legislative and procedural changes made in response to the pandemic and including details of key guidance documents issued by the government, the Regulator of Social Housing, the Welsh government, the Housing Ombudsman Service and others
