A one-day course for those who wish to expand their knowledge of what the law/guidance actually says. The objective is to understand that there is no centralised source of information regarding a DRO. What we need will be contained somewhere in (insolvency) legislation, case law or guidance.
Who should attend?
You should have completed DRO Practice & Procedures and/or have at least a year’s experience of DRO work.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- recognise the differences between the Insolvency Act, regulations and case law, how they interlink and where to find specific information,
- explain how case law regarding rent arrears, benefit overpayments and changes in income after the DRO is made should affect your advice,
- assess whether a client (who wishes to proceed with an application) may be subject to a restrictions order,
- describe the process for challenging a decision by the official receiver up to and including an application to county court.
