About this Seminar

Our annual Mortgages update has consistently been one of our most popular events. This year, we decided to make it a full-day seminar rather than the usual half-day. We hope that, by doing this, the additional time will allow for a more in-depth discussion of the myriad of topics being regularly tackled by practitioners. The new format will also provide delegates with an opportunity to network and catch up with colleagues over a buffet lunch, which is included as part of the event.

Over the past few years, loan enforcement has generated more case law than any other area of law. In this seminar, we talk about the most significant cases from the Superior Courts, latest legislative developments and compliance with the central bank’s codes of conduct. This seminar provides the very latest information concerning mortgages and will be of great interest to any person advising financial institutions, state bodies and borrowers of all descriptions.  

The aim of this event is to update practitioners on the latest developments in the area of loan enforcement. Discussion focuses on the best advice to both lenders and borrowers, including both residential and corporate borrowers, in the event of default. We also consider the position of other affected parties, such as guarantors and the tenants of residential properties which are being repossessed. Since we focus on the latest developments, much of the content is not available in law books! As always, we provide delegates with detailed, up-to-date notes.
