2017 Guide to Property Notices - Validity and Service

1 CPD Hour = £18

Competency/Learning Objective - Legal knowledge and skills

Mistakes as to form, content or service can invalidate a contractual or statutory notice, sometimes with irretrievable consequences. This course contains a clear and practical guidance in relation to the legal principles governing whether a notice is valid and whether it has been properly served. 

By the end of the course you should be able to advise authoritatively on topics such as:

  • when the Mannai principle is, and is not, available to save a defective notice

  • when a ‘substantially similar’ or even an ‘inaccurate’ notice will still be good

  • how to achieve good service

  • when waiver and/or estoppel may prevent a recipient from relying on a defect even where the Mannai principle will not excuse that defect
