Property Patter: What can the property world expect from Parliament and the courts in 2023?

Emma Humphreys and Laura Bushaway are joined by Guy Fetherstonhaugh KC and Taylor Briggs of Falcon Chambers to look at what lies ahead for property law during 2023 – including decisions on service charges, the implications of the Building Safety Act 2022 and changes to the Electronic Communications Code. We also debate whether the government should stay away from property law and discuss the types of dispute we expect to see crossing our desks this year…
