Hardwicke is delighted to present this timely seminar examining the case of Hannon v Hillingdon Homes Ltd [2012] EWHC 1437 (QB), in which a landlord, through its management arm, was held responsible for injury to a contractor caused by a tenant’s alterations to the property, this raises difficult questions for local housing authorities and private registered providers alike.

The speakers include Andrew Lane (Social Housing Team) and Romilly Cummerson (Insurance Division), who take a look at the implications of this judgment for landlord liability under the Defective Premises Act 1972, explore the potential for conflict with the government-promoted tenant cashback scheme, consider the thorny issue of the Equality Act reasonable adjustments and address the steps landlords can take to avoid litigation.
