Introduction to Local Authority Housing Finance in England

Webinars

We are holding webinars entitled 'Introduction to Local Authority Housing Finance in England’ between April and May 2020. These webinars give an introduction and overview of this important subject and are fully up to date with all developments.

There are three webinars:

  • Introduction to Local Authority Housing Finance in England (revenue) - 29th July 2020 at 2pm
  • Introduction to Local Authority Housing Finance in England (capital) - 4th August 2020 at 2pm
  • Introduction to Local Authority Housing Finance in England (technical issues) - 11th August 2020 at 2pm

Each webinar will last about an hour and costs £30 plus value added tax (a total of £36).

These webinars are comprehensive and are 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. They are 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!

  • Introduction to Local Authority Housing Finance in England (revenue) refers to the Housing Revenue Account, Rents, Service Charges, Management and Maintenance, Self-Financing, Housing Benefit and Welfare Reform.
  • Introduction to Local Authority Housing Finance in England (capital) refers to Capital Programmes, Right to Buy, Development, the Affordable Housing Programme, Prudential Borrowing and Local Housing Companies.
  • Introduction to Local Authority Housing Finance in England (technical issues) refers to Strategic Housing, Arms’ Length Management, Private Finance Initiative, Business Planning, Risk Management, Asset Management and Value for Money.

All the webinars are fully up to date and refer 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. They also address the policies of the government that was elected in December 2019.

The presenter will be Adrian Waite, who is well known for his ability to explain complex financial matters clearly. To view his biography, please click here.
