Course Overview

Shale gas exploitation is currently high on the political, economic and environmental agenda as estimates suggest that the UK could meet around 10% of its current gas needs, if shale gas is extracted at a commercial rate.

In a bid to encourage hydrochloric fracturing (fracking), the Government are considering controversial plans which would allow this to take place under homes without the owners’ permission.

This course delivered by experienced property practitioner Richard Quenby, will examine fracking from a conveyancing perspective and will identify the problems which property owners are facing and what rights they have.
