Event description

Description

The SPA are hosting their annual CPD Conference this year on the 5 April 2019 at the newly renovated Mayflower Theatre. For several years this event has sold out and with membership at an all time high of over 440-460 we hope to continue this trend bringing you a chance to network and gain valuable CPD points at a fraction of the usual cost.

As has become traditional at our CPD events we will start with networking over hot drinks and pastries around 8.30am before the first speaker at 9am. There will be further networking opportunities throughout the morning with a coffee break around 10.30 and a buffet lunch from 12.30/1pm.

For the third year running Paris Smith LLP, an established law firm in Southampton and Winchester have agreed to sponsor this event. Paris Smith have one of the largest property legal teams in the southern region advising on all legal areas related to the property sector including specialist planning and property litigation teams. This leaves all the proceeds from ticket sales to go towards the Association's charity of the year, The Society of St James.

Here is a list of confirmed speakers so far:-

Paul Reaburn Surveyor and Mediator from Radius Consulting

s 18 : Value Added ?

For most worn second hand commercial properties,there is a point in objectively targeted expenditure on remedial works beyond which more can be spent in pursuit of perfection,but no more will be added to – or recovered in – freehold value.The “law of diminishing returns” all but invariably applies.

Yet in the context of dilapidations disputes in England & Wales, with this simple piece of statute clearly recognising this probability and having been reinforced by its incorporation into the CPR over 7 years ago,it remains the case that the majority of cases are settled on the basis of a Cost of Works figure negotiated and agreed between building surveyors.The judgement as to whether or not the impact of the disrepair on freehold value is probably less,is solely within the specialism of the valuation surveyor,whose input has not been sought.

Usually speakers at seminars want the audience to have their mobile phones switched off.But this speaker wants yours on,and ready to use as he speaks !All will become clear on the day. Paul Raeburn is a Valuer who has founded and operates several commercial property consultancies,two of which specialise in Diminution Valuations.He applies common sense and real-world Case Studies to illustrate how these work in practice,to the benefit of both landlords and tenants involved in the often hostile and murky world of dilapidations disputes.


Mike Pavitt Head of Corporate Restructuring & Insolvency, Partner at Paris Smith LLP and Andrew Watling Partner at Quantuma LLP

Insolvent Tenants and CVAs: myth busting with the insolvency experts

In this session, Mike Pavitt and Andrew Watling will take us on a tour of corporate insolvency issues as they affect landlords, focusing on the recent revival of company voluntary arrangements (CVAs). The session offers both information and practical tips for landlords and those advising landlords.

Mike is an experienced insolvency lawyer and current Chair of R3 (the Association of Business Recovery Professionals) in the Southern Region. Andrew is a qualified, appointment-taking insolvency practitioner accountant who boast a great deal of experience assisting companies and creditors in matters involving leasehold interests.

Fiona Gray Project Director for Buckland Development Ltd

Fiona Gray will be giving a talk on the new Welborne Garden Village development connected to Fareham which will benefit from:-

  • Up to 6,000 new homes all within a three minute walk of allotments and open spaces
  • 5,735 new jobs
  • New community and health facilities including a community building and smaller community hub
  • One new secondary school and three new primary schools
  • New sports facilities
  • New play areas and allotments
  • 270 acres (108 hectares) of natural green space
  • 1,000,000ft2 (97,250m2) allocated for office, light industrial and warehouse space
  • Major improvements to Junction 10 on the M27

Field Court Chambers and the Property Litigation team at Paris Smith LLP will conclude the conference by putting on a mock Land Tribunal Trial based on an Adverse Possession Claim.

Ever wondered what happens in the confines of a property court room often after months or more likely years of parties battling it out to try and resolve a property dispute. After not having success through mediation or solicitor correspondence the last resort is for the case to be decided at the Land Tribunal by an independent property Judge. Find out first hand what happens at a Tribunal by watching a mock trial related to an adverse possession claim which is where one party claims to have owned land as a result of having exclusive occupation for 12 years or more.

Field Court Chambers will be travelling up from their Chambers in London to put on the mock trial for you assisted by the Property Litigation team from Paris Smith who have volunteered to be their witnesses. It would be good practice for the local property professionals who may be called upon to give evidence or be an expert at a trial to learn first hand what to expect on the day
