Agents are placed with a great deal of responsibility from their landlords; to effectively manage their investment, protect their asset and build good working relationships. Many agents are aware of the basics of lettings, however it is crucial to keep up to date with changes in legislation to avoid potential financial penalties and loss of trust. The last 2 years have seen significant change in the private sector which looks set to continue throughout the next few years.
This course is delivered by a successful landlord who for the last 5 years, has run her own letting agency. She was formally a tenant's rights adviser, so has first-hand experience of juggling the needs of tenants with those of landlord clients.
This 1 day workshop will bring you up to date on case law, legislative changes and ensure you're geared up for what's to come.
For letting agents and property managers only
