Landlords Update

Failure to keep up to date with changes to the law, rules and regulations affecting the private rented sector can have serious financial and reputational consequences. As the piecemeal changes in the sector accelerate and penalties increase, it is crucial that landlords are aware of the most current legislation, guidance and court decisions. The tenant fee ban is now in force and it is crucial that landlords and agents are aware of the potential impact. There continues to be changes around the use of Section 21, licensing of premises, energy efficiency and rent deposit legislation along with many other issues which are not so well known. It is vital that you are aware of the relevant changes.

Suitable for

All landlords, agents and property managers.
