Event Description


The Renters (Reform) Bill is set to disrupt the way student accommodation providers operate.

The student accommodation sector has raised some of the strongest objections to the abolition of fixed term tenancies, and Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) providers have been some of the loudest voices calling on the Government to think again.

But with a deal struck between the government and Conservative backbenchers which will allow the bill to progress, what are student accommodation providers going to do?

In this webinar we will examine the latest proposals in the Renters (Reform) Bill, specifically focussing on the new grounds for possession which will apply to student accommodation providers. We will also discuss important legal developments in HMO law affecting PBSAs, and specific issued related to the Tenant Fees Act 2019 which apply to student accommodation.

This event is primarily aimed at those working in the purpose built student accommodation sector, but the content should be relevant to anyone with an interest in private sector student accommodation, any anyone is welcome to attend.
