Hamilton Fraser’s property podcast aims to help support landlords and agents throughout the private rented sector with industry updates and key advice from industry experts.
In October’s episode, Eddie Hooker, CEO of award winning Hamilton Fraser Total Landlord Insurance and Paul Shamplina, Founder of Landlord Action and Brand Ambassador at Hamilton Fraser, are joined by special guest, Sean Hooker, Head of Redress at the Property Redress Scheme.
The Property Redress Scheme operates as a straightforward and easy to use consumer redress (ombudsman) scheme for property agents and professionals. Sean is a qualified Adjudicator (ACIArb), CEDR Accredited Mediator, and has a Professional Award in Ombudsman and Complaints Handling Practice (Queen Margaret University and Ombudsman Association), bringing a wealth of knowledge on the industry to the podcast to help keep landlords and agents up to date with legislative changes.
In the latest episode of Hamilton Fraser’s property podcast, Eddie, Paul and Sean attempt to decode the confusion surrounding legislation in the private rented sector, including delving into upcoming consultations that could impact landlords.
They also discuss the ‘tenant fee ban’, ‘Section 21’ updates, ‘right to buy’, ‘rent control’, and Sean gives his opinion on housing courts and whether there could be a ‘housing act overhaul’ on the horizon.
In addition, Sean, Eddie and Paul discuss the importance of preparing for upcoming regulation and legislative changes, whatever they may be! Read more about your current legal obligations here.
As always, Eddie and Paul round up the podcast by asking Sean … ‘If you could make one new property law, what would it be?’
