Sarah Thompson-Copsey, Non-Practising Solicitor, Legal Lecturer and Trainer

THE RED BOOK MOVES ON – EVOLUTION OR REVOLUTION?

The introduction of International Valuation Standards (IVS) 2017 saw some important changes to RICS Valuation Global Standards (the Red Book) effective from July 1, 2017.  In the latter part of 2017, RICS were due to have published revised UK National Standards.  This session will answer the following questions:

  • What practical improvements have IVS and the Red Book 2017 introduced?
  • What revisions have taken place to UK National Standards?
  • How are limitations and restrictions covered off in Red Book reports?
  • How do we use special assumptions when handling value impacting factors?
  • What do we say and cover off over valuation methods and approaches?
  • Will the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) create reporting and valuation issues?

DILAPIDATIONS –  PRESSURES, PITFALLS AND OPPORTUNITIES

The law of dilapidations used to revolve around case law and statute. It still does, but the world is changing rapidly and there are wider matters to consider; from the Guidance Note and RICS rules on conflict and confidentiality to the impact of sustainability related legislation. This interactive presentation will show you how to achieve the best outcome in dilapidations disputes.

  • RICS Guidance Note, 7th Edition: what has been the impact?
  • RICS DRS Scheme: settling dilapidations swiftly and effectively. Why it isn’t yet the answer…
  • MEES: the dilapidations defences – and do they work?
  • Conflicts of Interest: the new RICS policy and its effect on dilapidations (with examples)
  • Supersession: getting to grips with this undefined concept, using the principles of mitigation and causation (also with examples)
  • Partitions and carpets: how the Riverside Park -v- NHS Estates case clarifies matters
  • The next R22 type issue: here we go again. This time it’s HFCs

Paul Spaven, Partner TFT LLP and Chairman, RICS Dilapidations Forum Steering Group

10 LEGAL DECISIONS THAT MAKE LIFE DIFFICULT – AND HOW TO OVERCOME THEM

This session will look at legal decisions that almost seem designed to make dealing with commercial property a minefield, and will offer practical tips for spotting, avoiding and dealing with the problems they bring, including:

  • Contracted out leases that do have security of tenure: what to look for, how to handle them
  • Why peaceable re-entry can lead to unexpected problems and how to resolve them
  • Buying an existing lease – when the law does not recognise the new landlord, why and the practical way forward
  • Assignments that work – and those that don’t, in spite of landlord’s consent – when, why and what to do
  • Service of notices: untangling the legal web
  • When disregarding the landlord’s express instructions is essential
  • Commercial tenants and enfranchisement – is it true? Spotting problem buildings, and how to handle them

Sarah Thompson-Copsey, Non-Practising Solicitor, Legal Lecturer and Trainer

FLEXIBLE WORKING – THE EFFECTS ON PROPERTY – FUTURE GROWTH OR FUTURE DISASTER?

So-called flexible space is 4% of the office stock in central London, and is on the rise throughout the UK. WeWork operate worldwide and institutions like British Land and The Canary Wharf Group are also engaged. Is this the solution for tenants frustrated by FRI leases and landlords keen to let space? This talk will look at:

  • Key terms in typical agreements
  • Opportunities for tenants
  • Risks and challenges for landlords
  • Market impact

Suzanne Gill, Partner, Wedlake Bell

PLANNING – ARE WE REALLY ‘PLANNING FOR GROWTH’?

Despite successive Governments promising a faster, more efficient planning system, many professionals still struggle to navigate its ever changing legislation. This session will pick up a number of current themes and offer practical advice on key elements of planning, permitted development and new emerging initiatives such as Permission in Principle.

  • Is ‘Plan-led’ working?- a brief review of the ‘Plan-led’ system and its relationship with the National Framework
  • Navigating permitted development
  • Permission in Principle: a ‘3rdWay’ of getting planning permission?
  • Neighbourhood Plans: licensed NIMBYISM?

Ian Anderson, Senior Director of Planning, Cushman and Wakefield
