The complex nature of housing law and the significant human impact of cases lost and won, means the number of cases before the courts continues to grow. Housing Law Casebook covers the whole spectrum of housing law.

The thematic structure, succinct case summaries and useful cross-referencing enable busy practitioners to identify relevant cases, quickly and efficiently. It is essential reading for barristers, solicitors, voluntary sector advisers, housing managers, Homeless Persons Unit officers and students.

Housing Law Casebook covers:

  • Creation and termination of tenancies and licences
  • Security of tenure - assured, assured shorthold, secure, introductory, demoted, protected and common law tenants and licensees
  • Grounds for possession and reasonableness
  • Occupants without security of tenure
  • Possession procedure - against tenants, mortgagees and other occupiers
  • Disrepair
  • Housing outside the Housing Acts - community care, Children Act and asylum-seekers
  • Illegal eviction and harassment
