Landmark eviction ruling handed down by Court of Appeal

first_imgLetting agents who forget to give tenants a valid gas safety certificate at the beginning of a tenancy may now be let off the hook if they later have to evict a tenant using a Section 21 notice.Three Court of Appeal judges yesterday agreed that instead, as long as a certificate is served prior to the S21 notice and was valid before and during the tenancy, the eviction can proceed.The case is a landmark ruling and has been rumbling on for two years. Known as Trecarrell House Ltd vs Patricia Rouncefield, the tenant claimed that she could not be evicted because the law requires a gas safety certificate to be given to a tenant when they move in.Rouncefield’s property had a valid gas certificate both before and during her tenancy but she was not given a copy prior to when she moved in during February 2017. She was served with a Section 21 notice on 1st May 2018.After an initial lower court case and then an appeal, this latest judgement has firmly come down in the landlord’s favour.The judges agreed that the legislation was unclear and sometimes contradictory and, despite agreeing that its aim was to ensure the safety of tenants and that was clear that a gas safety certificate should be given to any new tenant “before that tenant occupies those premises, the judgement points out the need for a certificate was a mere ‘procedural requirements’ and not a ‘substantive sanction”.“We welcome the clarity that today’s ruling brings for the sector. Going forward, however, ministers remain committed to eventually getting rid of Section 21 altogether,” says John Stewart, Deputy Policy Director for the NRLA, which supported Trecarrell House during the initial stages of the case.Read the judgement in full.Trecarrell House Ltd vs Patricia Rouncefield Gas safety certificate section 21 evictions Court of Appeal June 19, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

HMAS Canberra Starts Helicopter Trials

first_img View post tag: Naval View post tag: HMAS Canberra March 27, 2015 View post tag: starts Australian Navy’s landing helicopter dock HMAS Canberra has commenced the first phase of helicopter trials at sea off the coast of both New South Wales and Queensland.The Navy’s Aircraft Maintenance and Flight Trials Unit is onboard Canberra conducting the trials with two MRH 90 helicopters from 808 Squadron and one S70B-2 Seahawk helicopter from 816 Squadron, along with their flight teams, to support the trials.Canberra’s Commander Air, Commander Paul Moggach, said the trials were required to set operating limits for the Landing Helicopter Dock’s six spot flight deck.These trials are critical to the safe operation of helicopters onboard. The resulting operating limits will be used by all helicopters that operate from the deck of either Canberra or Adelaide during the course their life.Ship helicopter operating limits are developed for all aspects of operations, including launch, recovery, degraded states of recovery, vertical replenishment and on deck evolutions such as aircraft movement or refuelling. These are then overlaid to whole ship evolutions including amphibious operations using the ship’s Landing Craft.Among other firsts, Canberra has completed her first helicopter hot deck refuelling and the first concurrent helicopter serial, with two helicopters operating from the deck at the same time.Also part of the trials is the movement of air aircraft around the six-spot flight deck and between the hangar and flight deck via the ship’s two aircraft lifts.Canberra departed Jervis Bay to conduct hot weather trials off the coast of Townsville before she proceeds south in April to do cold weather flight trials off Tasmania. The ship will return to Fleet Base East, Sydney in May before commencing her work up at sea across all her capabilities.[mappress mapid=”15520″]Image: Australian Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today HMAS Canberra Starts Helicopter Trials View post tag: News by topic HMAS Canberra Starts Helicopter Trialscenter_img View post tag: Navy Share this article View post tag: Asia-Pacific Authorities View post tag: trials View post tag: Helicopterlast_img read more

Here is how PHP Agency’s Life Insurance Services Thrived Amidst the Hardships of 2020

first_imgA bright spotlight shone on the life insurance sector all throughout 2020. The unfolding impact of the global health pandemic, coupled with people suddenly – and rightly – concerned about their legacy, sent millions scrambling to learn more. For these reasons, many of which are attributable to wise in-house decision-making, PHP Agency was able to thrive last year when other companies, endured layoffs, shuttered locations or closed-up shop altogether.PHP Agency is a tech-enabled life insurance marketing organization that has been in business for well over a decade. As a Field Marketing Organization (FMO), the company distributes life insurance products to clients via its top-rated carrier partners. Offering the diverse and underserved middle class access to the best insurance products is the Company’s single-minded goal. Whether it is done through life insurance plans or business opportunities, premium insurance products are made available to “regular” consumers within the highly regulated industry These sought-after solutions provide all member agents the chance to provide meaningful services to families and given the events of 2020, it was a busy year to be with the PHP Agency.“PHP is a mission driven organization that thrived during the pandemic by focusing on the purpose they serve; they were not distracted by adversity created by the pandemic,” said Mehran Assadi, Chairman, CEO and President of National Life Group.Assadi continued, “When organizations have a ‘in spite of’ attitude they can improvise during difficult times and succeed. We at National Life Group are honored to have PHP as a strategic partner.”PHP Agency’s Strengths Shine during Difficult YearThe ability to adapt, improvise and thrive during the pandemic put PHP Agency in a unique position. The company, which operates in a highly regulated sector and is licensed in 49 states plus Puerto Rico, has more than 18,000 life insurance licensed agents to call on. These are middle class individuals who have helped reach over 250,000 families and get them protected. The carrier partners who work with PHP Agency include well-known names in insurance like National Life Group, American National and Foresters. PHP Agency reviews reflect the fact that this company is truly committed to helping average Americans obtain life insurance; agents proudly have the freedom to speak for themselves when discussing options with new members and the net result is a plan they can count on.The plethora of positive PHP Agency reviews received in 2020 can be attributed to a number of factors. For starters, the company did not request – nor need – federal “bailout” funds via the Paycheck Protection Program. This offering from the U.S. Small Business Association was “designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on payroll.”  That speaks volumes as to the health of the company and its longevity.“PHP had another unbelievable growth year of over 50% with American National. Despite the continuing challenges of COVID-19, PHP continues to amaze us with their tenacity for growth and doing what is right for their customers,” said Craig Klenk, Vice President of Brokerage Sales for American National Life Insurance Company. “PHP is an open and honest business partner writing quality business which we greatly appreciate. 2021 will be even more fantastic!”Speaking to PHP’s growth in 2020 when many other companies were flat or shrinking, Foresters Financial Chief Distribution Officer Mark Rush commented, “In 2020, PHP grew its partnership with Forester’s client-centric solutions and in the process helped PHP producers grow as entrepreneurs, opening business ownership to everyone.”Picture: Live Regional Event in Louisville, KY hosted by top field agents Sheena & Matt Sapaula and Rodolfo & Cecilia Vargas whose businesses generate millions in revenue and have established offices across the country.There is no doubt that the ability to grow during a pandemic must be accompanied by flexibility as an organization. For example, the company’s annual convention was moved to a virtual setting to ensure the national sales team could still benefit from the motivation, training and education that was scheduled for the convention. By making the switch to a virtual format, PHP was able to keep employees safe and even take advantage of adding more notable speakers and guests.As tests became more readily available, PHP was able to host some regional annual kick-off events virtually and in-person for those able to attend. Despite a mix of winter snowstorms and a national pandemic, the events safely hosted more than 1,500 people who wore masks, socially distanced, and received negative COVID-19 tests. Many lessons were learned throughout the pandemic. PHP will continue to evolve by learning from past experiences and ensuring that the company is able to adapt to any challenges that may come their way.last_img read more

UK airline Flybe collapses as virus hits flights worldwide

first_imgFlybe is the biggest operator of UK domestic flights and carries around eight million passengers annually.But it failed to turn around its fortunes since being purchased by the Connect Airways consortium last year, initially owing to weak demand and fierce competition.That has now been compounded by the new coronavirus, with a slew of airlines cancelling flights and warning profits would take a hit from decreased demand.The announcement came hours after media reports that the airline could collapse following its failure to secure a £100 million ($129 million, 115 million euros) state loan to help stabilise the business. One of Britain’s biggest airlines, Flybe, collapsed Thursday with passengers left stranded as the coronavirus epidemic takes a heavy toll on air travel around the world.A statement on Flybe’s website said the no-frills airline, which employs 2,000 people, had entered administration and could not arrange alternative flights for its passengers.”All flights have been grounded and the UK business has ceased trading with immediate effect,” said the company, which avoided going bust in January only after being granted a tax holiday by the government. The impact of COVID-19 on travel “has made a bad situation much worse”, sources told the BBC, while Bloomberg News reported Thursday that no agreement could be reached on a virus-related government bailout.Small British airlines have suffered recently from volatile fuel costs and a weak pound. ‘Do not travel to airport’ Flybe operates from 43 airports across Europe and 28 in Britain, and its collapse left potentially thousands of people stranded far from home.”If you are due to fly with Flybe, please DO NOT TRAVEL TO THE AIRPORT unless you have arranged an alternative flight with another airline,” the airline said.The British government said it had asked bus and train operators to accept Flybe tickets and other airlines to offer reductions to help passengers reach their destination.”Flybe’s financial difficulties were longstanding and well documented and pre-date the outbreak of COVID-19,” a spokesperson said in a statement.Flybe’s owner, the Connect Airways consortium, is led by Virgin Atlantic and also includes investment firm Cyrus and infrastructure specialist Stobart.Chief Executive Mark Anderson said “every possible attempt” had been made to avoid the collapse, but that the airline had been “unable to overcome significant funding challenges”.In January, Flybe said it had agreed a payment plan with authorities to defer tax payments of less than £10 million.That announcement came just days after the airline was saved from collapse in a last-minute financial rescue, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government agreeing to review air passenger duty (APD) paid by Flybe’s customers.Following the tax deferral, rival companies including British Airways-parent IAG complained to the European Union that it was receiving unfair state aid.The decision also sparked the ire of Greenpeace UK, which at the time called the air-ticket tax cut a “poorly thought-out policy that should be grounded”.”Cutting the cost of domestic flights while allowing train fares to rise is the exact opposite of what we need,” the environmental campaign group said.The government said its assistance did not breach EU rules and that help was based on the importance of the company’s domestic services.However, that contrasted with the fate of British holiday giant Thomas Cook, which collapsed without government assistance in September, causing the loss of 22,000 jobs worldwide and stranding 600,000 holidaymakers abroad.Topics :last_img read more
