This ninth edition of the popular and well-respected Manual of Housing Law covers all the key areas of housing law in one compact volume and has been substantially re-written and re-structured since the last edition published.

It is designed and written for practitioners and advisors, to keep them abreast of legislative changes and case law developments. The succinct yet informative style bridges the gap between the needs of the specialist practitioner, the non-lawyer and student.

  • Deals with the rights of all forms of occupier, including owner-occupiers and tenants
  • Takes full account of recent changes in legislation, including the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008
  • Considers major recent developments under the Human Rights Act, including specific treatment of the impact of the Act in each chapter
  • Explains amendments made under the Localism Act 2011
  • Includes a new chapter on the Regulation of Social Landlords
  • The Manual is easy to use, with chapter summaries and individual paragraph headings for ease of reference and clarity of direction
  • Cases are dated within the text
  • Cross-referencing places each topic in its full practical context
