Housing Law in Practice is a unique, powerful resource tool for housing professionals including housing law practitioners. It enables the user to see how the law works in practice and therefore give effective client advice. The book is a comprehensive case/statute citator, building on the primary legislation by showing how the law has been interpreted by the courts, through digests of the most significant cases. It includes cases not referred to elsewhere. Indispensable for research, the cases are summarised in terms of key facts, ratio and observation, with relevant statute sections noted. Cases are linked to the relevant sections of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001. More than just a citator, Housing Law in Practice puts the case law into context through analysis and commentary, and explains the relevance of the cases and the digests, which are organised by problem. This allows the reader to quickly find the solution to their question. The addition of style writs and minutes makes this a fully comprehensive tool for anyone involved in housing law.
Topics include housing disrepair & dampness; eviction and unlawful eviction; Environmental Protection Act (including noise nuisance); homelessness (including developments from the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001); housing benefit; homeless and disturbance payments; s.2 applications under the Mortgage Rights (Scotland) Act 2001 and the right to buy. Specifically designed to assist the housing law practitioner by providing relevant solutions, this book, written in an accessible style, aids all those involved in legal issues with affecting housing.
