Landlord Advice Roadshow
As the UK's first national landlord association, the RLA provides a place to get accurate, up-to-date advice about important legislative changes, and any letting challenges you might be facing. This evening event allows the chance for topical debate as well as an opportunity to raise specific issues you may be facing in your lettings business. The seminar also gives the occasion to network with other lettings professionals while sharing best practice and useful tips.
Housing law expert, landlord and letting agent Carrie Kus will deliver a short talk on minimum energy efficiency standards and general data protection regulations. With MEES and GDPR being two of the most pertinent topics for the lettings industry currently, this is your chance to ask the most burning questions and get first hand, expert advice. Carrie will also cover a brief update on the PRS at the seminar, highlighting some other important issues you may have missed but need to consider.
Then it's over to you and the floor opens up to questions - and there is nothing like a challenge for Carrie so bring along your most challenging queries, stories, issues and frustrations. Find solutions and learn improved processes through discussion and debate.
Our dedicated landlord advice team experts will be on hand running a clinic if you require one to one advice. If you're a member, chances are, you've spoken to them on the phone before, but here's your chance to put a face to the voice. If you're not a member with us and fancy finding out what the fuss is about, come along and chat with our experts so they can help you out with that problem tenancy, possession issues or arrears management.
Additionally our Senior Researcher, Tom Simcock, will join us to discuss current research conducting by the RLA, government campaigns and how you can support them if you wish. The RLA prides itself on conducting high-quality research on the political issues facing the PRS in order to influence decision makers to make renting better. If you want to have your say about how the PRS could be operated this is a great way to get your voice heard.
A Sheffield Council representative will be available to respond to any licensing or local authority related issues.
Attendees are offered the chance to become an RLA member re-new their membership on the night and/or sign up to any of our 25 training courses and receive 50% discount on all costs. You will also take home a copy of our PRS handbook filled with useful information all landlords and letting agents should know.
