I’ve been busy advising landlords on HMO liability over the past month.
Some were looking for “quick” advice. While I am known for turning round work fast – “quick” is another matter. “Quick” implies, “off the top of your head, what’s the answer?”
Whether a person has HMO liability will depend on the facts of their case.
When it comes to applying the Housing Act 2004 to the specific facts of a case, I’ll need to see all of the documentation and take full instructions before giving advice.
While I can work to tight deadlines, I don’t put my clients at risk by giving them “quick” or “off the cuff” advice.
Because when it comes to defending my Housing or any of clients at the Magistrates Court, meticulous preparation is key to obtaining the best possible outcome.
