The laws for landlords and letting agents are changing in Wales! The Housing (Wales) Act 2014 is bringing in mandatory accreditation and licensing for ALL landlords and letting agents.
This is a significant change in the law and will affect everyone in the private rented sector in Wales. To help Welsh landlords and property professionals prepare, we are putting on a major Conference in Cardiff on 15 May with specialist speakers, including:
- Professor Martin Partington QC CBE – the Law Commissioners who lead the original project
- Solicitor David Smith of Anthony Gold who will be explaining the legislation
- Anne Rowlands of the Welsh Government who will talk about how the new laws will actually be implemented
- David Cox, MD or ARLA who will discuss the new laws from the point of view of letting agents
- Douglas Haig, Vice Chairman of the RLA who will discuss the new laws from the point of view of landlords
- Professor David Cowan who will speak about the Renting Homes Bill – the next major housing act – and will update us on its progress
Exhibitors will include lead sponsors TDS, The Property Redress Scheme, Envirovent, and the Welsh Licensing Authority (for rented property under the new Act).
The Conference fee is £180 (inclusive of VAT) which includes course notes, free wi fi, refreshments and lunch.
Some discounts are available for existing customers and there is also the chance to get our 2014 Conference Course at a special ‘conference goers’ rate..
