Earlier this month, the Residential Landlord Association (RLA) announced that it has been approved to deliver Rent Smart Wales landlord training courses in the classroom.
All landlords who rent out property in Wales have to register with Rent Smart Wales and as part of the Rent Smart Wales licensing agreement licence holders are required to have completed approved training – meaning you can successfully manage tenancies within the law and maintain the rented property in good repair.
Since the training course announcement the RLA has started taking bookings, and the response has been very positive. Places have been booked up quickly by landlords, and the first two Cardiff dates have sold out already.
The classroom courses – which offer the mandatory training to qualify under the new Rent Smart Wales scheme – will also be held in Wrexham on February 18th, and Swansea on February 19th, with further course dates to follow.
Introductory fees are £45 for RLA members and £95 for non-members. A special deal is also available to non-members offering the course and a one year’s membership of the RLA for £90, which has been proving very popular – so don’t delay book today!
It’s important to note that the course is relevant to landlord licensing only and not suitable for letting agents who will need to attend appropriate training in order to obtain an agents’ licence. Participants must pass an end-of-course assessment to be officially recognised and validated.
