Rotheras teamed up with Empo and Kingswood Residential to deliver an informative webinar covering the real issues many landlords are facing with possession and landlord management throughout the Covid-19 crisis.

The hour-long webinar covers the following points:

  • Legislative changes in possession proceedings due to Covid-19 and their practical implications.
  • The difficulty with obtaining possession during a pandemic.
  • How to pursue debt recovery as the possession timetable is so uncertain including pre-action protocol
  • Other legislative changes due to Covid-19
  • The need to implement robust record keeping processes around landlord compliance checks due to tenant self -isolation, tradesperson visits etc. This will cover property inspections & viewings, client/staff wellbeing & recommended processes to reduce risk of virus spread at rental properties
