Housing Law Update - Workshop for Agents

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 know the basics of lettings but it's important to keep up to date with changes in legislation. The last 18 months have seen significant change in the private sector and 2017 looks set to be the same.

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
