8. Residential Tenancies Conference

09:30am - 01:00pm
Andrew Upton, Jim Bauld, Chris Ryan
Seminar Details:

The Private Residential tenancy was introduced in December 2017 and at that date jurisdiction over all disputes in the private rented sector was transferred to the new First tier Tribunal Housing and Property Chamber

This conference will look at the way in which the new tenancy has worked in practice with specific emphasis on the decisions and procedures of the new tribunal, including consideration of the view point from the tenants’ side.

Our speakers include two solicitors who also sit on the tribunal as legal members

Topics covered will be -

• Significant decisions of the Tribunal, including Upper Tribunal decisions.…. Andrew Upton (Partner, Harper Macleod LLP)

• “Disrepair” as a defence to actions for eviction and rent arrears… Jim Bauld (Partner, TC Young)

• Protecting tenant’s rights in the Tribunal… Chris Ryan (Senior Solicitor, Shelter Scotland Housing Law Service)

Andrew regularly represents clients in the Sheriff Courts throughout Scotland, including Commercial Actions, and at the Lands Tribunal for Scotland and Scottish Land Court. He also has experience representing clients in quasi-judicial proceedings, including making written and oral representations to the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland and various disciplinary panels of regulatory bodies. Andrew sits part-time as a Legal Member of the First-tier Tribunal (Housing and Property Chamber).
