Legal changes are coming along all the time for landlords and property professionals. For example last month we have had the start of the ‘right to rent’ trials in the West Midlands and a new case from the Court of Appeal on tenancy deposits!
It is difficult in the hustle and bustle of business life to take time out to catch up on everything – but one good way to do this is to attend one of our Landlord Law Conferences.
Our speciality is training in legal issues for property professionals and all our speakers are either qualified lawyers or experienced housing law trainers. So you can be sure that the training is accurate and up to date.
The Cambridge Conference http://lllconf.co.uk/cambridge/ on 14 April 2015 is great for a general catch up in essential areas – for example we have talks on section 21, ‘right to rent’ checks, fire safety, HMO prosecutions, utility regulations, protected tenancies, eviction, plus a talk on inventories and adjudications from our lead sponsors TDS. This is the third of these annual conferences we have run (previously in Bury St Edmunds) and all have been extremely successful.
The Welsh Conference http://lllconf.co.uk/wales/ in Cardiff on 15 May 2015 is a very special event which we are putting on in view of the substantial legal challenges facing Welsh landlords and letting agents. The Housing (Wales) Act 2014 is bringing in mandatory accreditation for all landlords and letting agents in 2015 and our conference looks at this from all angles. We have talks from lawyers involved in the legislative process, speakers from ALRA (on how the new rules will affect agents), the RLA (on how the new rules will affect landlords) and crucially from Anne Rowlands of the Welsh Government who will be discussing the implementation of the new rules.
This really is a ‘must attend’ event for all Welsh landlords and agents.
Both events have some great exhibitors – our main sponsors TDS will be at both events, as will the Property Redress Scheme, and Envirovent, with (at Cambridge) Flixflo and NW Brown and (at Cardiff) the RLA and ARLA (if YOUR company would like to be an exhibitor please contact us).
Early booking is advised for both events, particularly the Cambridge Conference as this sold out last year and already nearly half of the places have been sold.
