    Identifying and filling the legal gaps exposed by the Grenfell fire

    The University of Bristol has been awarded a grant by Shelter to conduct this research project.  The project team is Dave Cowan (Bristol), Helen Carr (Kent), Ed Kirton-Darling (Kent), and Ed Burtonshaw-Gunn (Bristol).

    Summary of the project

    This research project uses a survey method to address three objectives:

    • To set out clearly the gaps in current legislation which may make housing less safe and/or prevent households from remedying problems
    • To set out where lack of enforcement undermines existing legal protections
    • To identify legal remedies to strengthen protection for tenants.

    We are seeking evidence from renters and owner-occupiers, lawyers, other professionals involved in looking at the conditions of accommodation, and landlords (social and private).  Findings from this research will be used to produce a report for Shelter and other academic work.  This report and other work will not identify you, your household, or your business/place of work.


    At Training for Professionals we have long held that the biggest issue lies in a lack of enforcement and so we are delighted that this is finally being looked at. You can have your say by clicking here.

    Welsh Tenant Fee Ban Consultation

    The Welsh Government have launched their own consultation on banning tenant fees in Wales. For those with an interest in the area this is a great opportunity to ensure the voice of the industry is heard. The document is not too long or complex so well worth contributing to the discussion if we want to influence the outcome.

    Many of our readers will probably manage some multi-occupancy properties. You might be interested in this letter from DCLG to consider what it is recommending and if it is relevant to any of the properties you manage.
