In the twelfth episode of the Housing Law Practitioners' Association (HLPA) podcast, Russell-Cooke senior associate Caroline Brosnan gives an update on the Grenfell Inquiry.
With Module 2 coming to an end, all eyes turn to Module 3 which, for housing lawyers, is key. It involves hearing from residents of the Tower about their complaints and the maintenance of the building before the fire.
Caroline also explains the remaining modules of the Inquiry and their timeframes.
HLPA is the association of housing law practitioners. Its objectives are to promote, foster and develop equal access to the legal system, the rights of homeless persons, tenants and others who receive housing services or are disadvantaged in the provision of housing and to foster the role of the legal process in the protection of tenants and other residential occupiers. The HLPA also aims to foster the role of the legal process in the promotion of higher standards of housing construction, improvement and repair, landlord services to tenants and local authority services to public and private sector tenants, homeless persons and others in need of advice and assistance in housing provision.
