Dispute Resolution…

Thursfields expert delivering ‘private nuisance’ property update in Shropshire

A dispute resolution legal expert from Thursfields Solicitors is delivering a “private nuisance” update for property professionals at a meeting in Shropshire.

The “Private Nuisance: Legal Essentials” seminar is being led by Lauren, a Chartered Legal Executive in the Dispute Resolution team at Thursfields’ Birmingham office.

Lauren is speaking at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS) event on the evening of Thursday 7 February at the Shropshire Conference Centre in Shrewsbury. The event will help those attending to fully understand:

  • What private nuisance is – and isn’t
  • Establishing liability
  • Remedies and defences, and
  • Recent case law and case studies.

Lauren said: “Private nuisance relates to interference with a person’s enjoyment and use of their land. While it may sound like a relatively simple concept, there can often be confusion around what this means in practice.

As a long-established civil action reliant on ‘unreasonable’ behaviour, there are important definitions and precedents to know which help define private nuisance and inform your practice.

I’m pleased to be working with RICS on making sure its members have a clear understanding of the legal essential of private nuisance.”

The event is part of the RICS’ series of continuing professional development (CPD) foundation seminars and is free for subscribers or £35 plus VAT for non-subscribers. It opens for registration from 6.15pm, with the event running from 6.45 to 7.45pm.

The Shropshire Conference Centre is on Mytton Oak Road, Shrewsbury, SY3 8XQ. For more details and to book, visit the RIC’s event page – https://www.rics.org/uk/events/conferences-seminars/cpd-foundation-seminars/private-nuisance-legal-essentials/shrewsbury/20190207/
