ALEP Autumn Conference is judged the Association’s best yet by delegates

ALEP’s Autumn Conference 2015 took place on Tuesday 20 October at the Royal College of Physicians in Regent’s Park. 

Hosted by ALEP’s Honorary President, Damian Greenish, the conference was attended by over 260 delegates – a full house once again.

Delegates enjoyed lunch and networking after which Alex Greenslade of Leasehold Solutions, and ALEP’s founder and Honorary Secretary, gave a colourful presentation on non-participant funding in collective enfranchisements.

Mark Loveday and Nicola Muir, barristers at Tanfield Chambers, presented the traditional case update outlining what’s hot in 2015 and what’s to come in 2016.

After a short recess for afternoon tea, Peter Beddard of Arundales Chartered Accountants steered delegates through the maze of common enfranchisement taxation pitfalls.

The conference – ALEP’s 17th – was described by delegates after the event as the Association’s best yet and, undoubtedly, its highlight was the thought-provoking debate on Philip Rainey  QC’s paper ‘Further Leasehold Reform Radical Thinking’. 

The panel session was expertly chaired by Joshua Rozenberg, Britain’s best-known commentator on the law, who facilitated an engaging – and at times controversial – discussion between delegates
and guest panellists barristers Philip Rainey QC, Anthony Radevsky and Thomas Jefferies.

Delegates and VIPs, including representatives from LEASE, the RICS, ARMA, IRPM and the NAEA, enjoyed a drinks reception in the impressive Dorchester Library after the event.
