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

Forthcoming releases will include coverage of:
  • The ongoing developments – legislative, procedural and case-law – in response to the Coronavirus pandemic
  • The forthcoming Supreme Court cases in Duval v 11-13 Randolph Crescent Ltd (enforcement of mutual covenants in residential leases) and R (Z and others) v Hackney London Borough Council (allocation policies and charity benefiting a particular minority group)
  • Other important forthcoming cases include Hussain v LB Waltham Forest (HMO licensing and spent convictions), XXX v Camden LBC (anonymity in allocation challenges), Curo Housing Association Ltd v Pimlett (housing associations and service charges), Jarvis v Evans (first case on Welsh “landlord licensing” provisions), Gateway HA v Begum (NTQs and the role of the Public Trustee), Barton v HVMCL (conflict between interests of shareholder and leaseholder in lessee-owned company) and Croydon LBC v Kalonga (first case on flexible tenancies)
  • Anticipated legislative reforms across the full range of housing law, including changes designed to improve the position of survivors of domestic violence in relation to re-housing options (Domestic Violence Bill) and proposals to bring rentcharges within the jurisdiction of the First-Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber)
