All You Want to Know about Local Authority Housing Finance 2020

Seminar

We are holding our 2020 series of ‘All You Want to Know About Local Authority Housing Finance’ between March and November 2020. This seminar gives an introduction and overview to this important subject and is fully up to date with all developments.

This seminar is designed for people who are not experts in housing finance, but who need to understand the basics and achieve an overview of what is going on. It is suitable for councillors, housing managers, tenant representatives, finance staff who have limited experience of local authority housing finance and others who realise that an understanding of housing finance can place them at an advantage!

Do you think that a working knowledge of local authority housing finance would put you and your colleagues in a position of advantage?

The session will answer the following questions:
  • How does the Housing Revenue Account work?
  • How does the Housing General Fund work?
  • How does the Housing Capital Programme work?
  • What are the Financial Opportunities and Threats for Local Authority Housing?

The session is comprehensive and refers to the Housing Revenue Account, Rents, Service Charges, Self-Financing, Capital Programmes, Right to Buy, Development, Prudential Borrowing, Housing Benefit, Welfare Reform, Strategic Housing, Arms’ Length Management, Business Planning and much more. The session is fully up to date and refers to the recent social housing green paper; the lifting of the ‘borrowing cap’; policy on ‘right to buy’ receipts; and setting of rents based on the consumer prices index plus 1% a year. It will also address the policies of the government that will be elected in December 2019. The session is accompanied by a very useful 100-page book, designed for reference after the session entitled: “All You Want to Know About Local Authority Housing Finance 2020”
