Landlord Law Blog roundup from 4 February

StudyingThings are starting to move with our Easy Law Training service – not only do we have our conference coming along nicely for the 15 March – we are also moving forward with our social housing side.

At the moment we have three trainers –

  • Ben who has a huge selection of courses >> here,
  • Sue Lukes the queen of eligibility >> here and
  • John Murray who can cover most leasehold and ASB issues (and in face much more) >> here

However it looks like we will soon be in a position to offer training on benefit and welfare issues, and maybe a few other bits and bobs.  I’ll keep you posted.
