It has been a momentous but fraught few weeks for landlords and letting agents, many of whom were not expecting the deluge of proposed legislation contained within the Government’s renting reform White Paper.

While reforms to evictions, a new landlord ombudsman and a Decent Homes Standard for private rented homes had been in the pipeline for some time, the sector was ambushed by some of its less-expected proposals.

These include a plan to outlaw landlords and letting agents from operating ‘blanket bans’ on renting to families with children, tenants in receipt of benefits or those with pets.

But what will the White Paper, which runs to 80 pages of detail about the Government’s proposals, really mean for landlords and letting agents?

Free webinar

To explain and discuss its most important policies, and take questions from those operating in the sector, LandlordZONE and HF Assist have put together a panel of industry experts, all of whom will appear in a free webinar next Monday (4th July) at 2pm.

These include Paul Shamplina of Landlord Action (main pic), Sean Hooker of the PRS, Suzy Hershman from myDeposits, and Mike Morgan from HF Assist. LandlordZONE editor Nigel Lewis will leading the webinar and be passing on questions from those dialing in.

“A lot of landlords and agents have been in contact with me since the proposals were published to outline their worries about its proposals, in particular because the White Paper is so huge and crammed with detail that’s hard to digest – so its time some of the industry’s key experts were convened,” says Shamplina.
