12 November, 2015
On 12th of November 2015, Forbes Solicitors hosted a discussion in relation to the 'Pay to Stay' policy, which the Government is planning to introduce in 2017.
The introduction of the budget has brought a number of changes affecting Registered Providers (RPs) of social housing. This event was a great opportunity to discuss the impact these changes are having, how RPs are coping in light of the changed climate, as well as how the new compulsory 'Pay to Stay' could be structured and its impact on RPs.
RPs were welcomed by Daniel Milnes, Head of Contracts and Project and Lachlan McLean, Partner, Housing Litigation. Daniel Milnes said, "while the consultation is confined to very specific issues, its impact throws up a range of matters from governance and regulatory to data protection".
For further details of the Government consultation please see our earlier blog. We will also be blogging about the key issues identified during the discussion shortly and responding to the Government consultation. Please check our website for updates and if you have any questions about this policy, please contact Daniel Milnes.
