Join us for our webinar series which will provide participants with an understanding of a number of different disputes that can arise in the rural sector, and how these may be avoided.
The first webinar in the series, Private residential tenancies in the rural sector, takes place on 26 September 2018. It will discuss the new rules on Private Residential Tenancies and their impact on the rural sector, including the changes in the rules on recovery of possession and what these changes mean for land owners, tenants and their advisers.
