You may remember from past LandlordZONE newsletters that our Landlord Law Conference took place on 12 May in Manchester.
It was our best Conference yet and it was lovely to see so many people from the North who had not been able to make it to our previous events. You can see some of them in the Flickr slideshow you can see here.
The speakers were fantastic. David Smith was, as always, excellent. We are particularly grateful to him for stepping in at the last moment and covering the Sue Lukes talk on Right to Rent as she had broken her ankle and was unable to attend.
We had a couple of new speakers – barrister Peter Marcus did a very entertaining talk on landlords repairing obligations, and it was lovely to welcome Giles Peaker (of Nearly Legal fame) who spoke on the HHSRS.
Other notable talks were from Warren Spencer on Fire Safety, Sam Madge-Wyle on what happens when parties to a tenancy die, and of course John King from our sponsors TDS talking on adjudications.
We also had some wonderful exhibitors including Tom Entwistle from LandlordZONE who we were delighted to welcome to the Conference at last. Others included previous exhibitors such as the RLA, ARLA, Envirovent and the Property Redress Scheme, and new exhibitors such as Property Principles and Grant Erskine – our first architect exhibitor.
The Hilton did us proud – the food was delicious and the day went like clockwork.
Next year we will be returning to the Eastern Counties as we have found a fabulous new venue just outside Norwich – the Sprowston Manor Hotel & Country Club – which, as well as wonderful conference facilities, has its own golf course, swimming pool and sauna (for delegates staying over).
The date is 19 May 2017 so please mark that in your diary and keep it clear!
