1 CPD Hour
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, including reference to Southwark LBC v Akhtar and Stel LLC (2017) and Grimes v The Trustees of the Essex Farmers And Union Hunt (2017)
when waiver and/or estoppel may prevent a recipient from relying on a defect even where the Mannai principle will not excuse that defect
