      My name is Sarah Rebello and I am Trainee Solicitor with Barwells Solicitors. I started my Training Contract in September 2018, alongside my Legal Practice Course (LPC), and I am currently 3 months away from completing it and, hopefully, qualifying! Once qualified my hope is that I will practice in the litigation department and I would especially like to specialise in property related disputes. As with pretty much the entire population of the UK the last 2 months have been very unsettling and completely unprecedented. When lockdown first happened I did not automatically think what impact this would have on my Training Contract but as time went on and home working became the new normal I had to reflect, and with the support of my Supervisor, decide on how I could continue with my training and be supervised remotely. To say it has been a learning curve is an understatement but by embracing new technology, such as Zoom and collaborative working online, I have been lucky enough to finish my LPC and continue my Training Contract.

      With the rules on lockdown starting to ease gradually, looking ahead to the approaching deadline which may see the lifting of the stay on issuing eviction proceeding, it is important that Landlords are aware of a new rule which comes into force today on the need to supply an electrical safety certificate in certain private rented accommodation.
      The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020 applies to specified new tenancies which commence on or after the 1st July 2020 including renewals and in relation to all existing tenancies the deadline for compliance is the 1st April 2021.

      The Litigation team have been very busy this week with an urgent application to the High Court. They were instructed by a local business who had discovered that a small number of their ex staff had set up another company in the same geographical area in direct competition. An urgent application was made for an interim injunction to the High Court to restrain them from further dealing in competition and from contact with clients of the company. The application was successful and they managed to secure both the injunction and an order for costs.
