Zoom Webinar: Dealing with homelessness appeals

22 Mar 2021, 11:00 am



Speakers: Catherine Rowlands, Andy Lane, Tara O’Leary and Rowan Clapp

The Housing Team at Cornerstone Barristers has tremendous experience of dealing with homelessness appeals, all the way through to the Supreme Court. This webinar however focuses on section 204 and section 204A appeals in the county court. It looks at those appeals through the lens of the local authority respondent. What are the common pitfalls? What can be done to improve the prospects of success? Are witness statements of any use? What are the settlement options? How are the courts handling the challenges of homelessness and accommodation during the pandemic? These are just some of the questions Catherine, Andy, Tara and Rowan will be answering. 


The webinar is aimed at local authority officers and those solicitors instructed by local authorities in such appeals.
