The seminars for 2019 will retain the same high standards for which 'AWICS' is well known and will include some new and topical subjects.
The 2019 series of seminars are as follows. Further sessions will be added to the website as and when the dates and venues are confirmed:
This seminar is designed to give an introduction and overview to this important subject and is fully up to date with all developments. Service charges are an integral part of landlords’ work in financing value for money services and sustaining customer satisfaction. They have always been relatively complex but with increased financial challenges and legal and financial complexity there is an increased need to understand how service charging works.
This series of seminars gives an introduction and overview to this important subject and is fully up to date with all developments. It explains how the housing revenue account, housing general fund and housing capital programme works and considers the threats and opportunities facing local authority housing especially in view of the government's recent policy initiatives including the lifting of the 'borrowing cap'.
There is general agreement that England is facing a ‘housing crisis’ and that a lack of social and affordable housing is a significant part of this. There is therefore an appetite in many local authorities to build new council homes as part of their response to the crisis.
This seminar looks in depth at the opportunities that have been created for local authorities by the government’s decision to raise the housing revenue account borrowing cap. These include opportunities to improve existing stock and construct or acquire new stock.
