Once again we have had a year of change – and there are more changes to come. Some of these will significantly impact on the business models of both landlords and letting agents.
How can you keep up to date?
For the past seven years, we have run an annual Landlord Law Conference focusing on legal information and updates and 2019 is no different.
This year we are teaming up with Hamilton Fraser Insurance (our new Lead Sponsors) to bring you the very best training available. Here is what we have in store for you on 17 May:
- The Year in Review – David Smith, solicitor and partner at Anthony Gold Solicitors and Director of Policy at the Residential Landlords Association will update us on all the legal changes so you are fully up to date
- Gas and Electricity in rented homes – housing barrister Peter Marcus will give an overview of the law relating to these important topics and take a quick look at the new rules on their way
- Letting Agent Regulation – David Cox, the CEO of Arla Propertymark will bring us up to date on the Tenant Fees Bill and other regulatory changes which will affect letting agents (and their landlord clients)
- Landlords obligations for repair and fitness for habitation – housing barrister Sam Madge Wyld, looks at the new act and how it fits into landlords existing obligations
- Dealing with complaints – Sean Hooker, the Ombudsman at the Property Redress Scheme looks at the best way to deal with complaints from customers
- Tenancy Deposits and Zero Deposits – Suzy Hershman, Head of Dispute Resolution at My Deposits will be looking at the best way to deal with these
- Airbnb and other vacation rentals – should landlords be concerned? – housing barrister Katie Gray will be looking at the impact of Airbnb and how it has affected the private rented sector
- Getting Section 8 Notices Right – housing barrister Robert Brown looks at the problems and procedures relating to section 8 notices for eviction claims
- Enforcement work in the Private Rented Sector – Ben Reeve Lewis talks about frustrations, inconsistencies and how the bad guys so often get away with it.
- Court Procedures – We end with a half hour session where Peter Marcus will answer questions from delegates on Court Procedures.
I think you will agree that this is an exciting program and covers all the legal topics that you and your staff need to know about.
The Conference will once again be taking place at the lovely Sprowston Manor Hotel just outside Norwich.
Its a great location for a Conference as it is surrounded by grass and trees (it has its own golf course) so you are taken away from the hurly-burly of normal life and can relax and concentrate on learning – and meeting new friends and networking!
If you are not local why not stay over and take a short holiday break? Special accommodation rates are available for delegates as well as discounts on the hotel’s Spa and golf facilities.
