The 2021 Virtual IMA Conference will include a panel session on virtual enforcement, which will run for an hour from 11.30am on Tuesday 29 June.
This panel session will look at virtual enforcement, following the judgment by the High Court in January that ruled that controlled goods agreements can be made without prior physical entry to the premises where the goods are located. Presenters will discuss the impact this will have on debt advice clients and advisers, and there will be an opportunity for delegates to ask questions.
The session will feature:
- Michael Agboh-Davison, IMA (session chair)
- Alan Murdie, Barrister
- Natalie Tate, Just
- Rachel Wilson, Citizens Advice
It will be useful for attendees to have an understanding of the ruling in advance of the session, which will focus on the practical implications of the decision. Therefore, we recommend attendees read the summary of the judgment by IMA trustee Robert Rosenberg in the Winter 2020/21 edition of our journal Quarterly Account (issue 59), and the article on virtual enforcement by IMA Money Advice Specialist Michael Agboh-Davison in the Spring 2021 edition (issue 60) beforehand
