Knowledge Bank: Dispensation from consultation


15 Dec 20


10:00 to 11:00

Dispensation from consultation Section 20 - Landlord & Tenants Act 1985

In the final of our three part series we tackle the complex topic of dispensation from consultation.  With issues arising that require immediate attention there often isn’t sufficient time for a full consultation process to be undertaken, therefore an application to the Tribunal is necessary.  Our expert Cassandra Zanelli will walk you through this process and provide a comprehensive checklist to ensure that you are fully prepared for all eventualities.

In this webinar we will cover: 

  • Section 20 consultation: recognising when and why it’s necessary
  • Consultation requirements: an overview
  • Jurisdiction of the Tribunal to dispense with some (or all) of the consultation requirements
  • The approach of the Tribunal following Daejan v Benson
  • Conditional dispensation
  • Interplay with service charge applications
  • Lifecycle of a dispensation application
