Seminars

From October 2014 until December 2019 Doug Stevens conducted monthly seminars for graduates and trainees, free of charge, open to young surveyors from large and small practices, retailers, pension funds and property companies.

The seminars covered a wide range of property issues.  Each was for approximately 50 minutes with open questions at the end.

All of the seminars are available to download from this website.

Some of them cover issues on which entire books are written and so cannot be entirely comprehensive – but endeavour to provide the legal framework and its practical application.
