About the webinar

What do you actually need to do for the Fitness for Human Habitation Act?

Now fully in force across all tenancies, this new legislation brings no new landlord obligations but does bring a whole load of potential consequences for our social housing sector. Are you up to speed with what you need to know, how you need to get your management arrangements in order and how can technology, IOT and innovation reduce the risks of disrepair and claims? And how do we do all this when faced with the operational challenges that COVID-19 brings?
