The timing of this debate could not be more judicious! Just this past week, the Government announced a whole new raft of plans to further regulate the private rented sector.

This is what we know so far:
- All private landlords, as well as agents, having to become members of an official redress organisation. 
- All letting agents will be regulated in order to practice. Incentives for longer term tenancies. 
- The possible introduction of a housing court. 
Add into the mix Section 24, the PRA and new energy efficiency rules, and our debate promises to be lively and robust! This is your chance to hear what our panel think and have YOUR say! 

Expect top tips on letting and property management from the industry experts taking part.

The session will be hosted by Landlord Action's, Paul Shamplina - who will be joined by:
Vanessa Warwick | Co-founder, Property Tribes
Sean Hooker | Head of Redress, Property Redress Scheme
Samuel Fitz-Hugh | Lettings Manager, LiFE Residential
David Sandeman | Founder, Essential Information Group

Investors | Looking for a new best friend? ... try the Auction Room!

Speaker: David Sandeman - Managing Director, Essential Information Group

As the shortage of new build property remains - and seems likely to remain - a reality in certain parts of the UK (especially London and the South East), many investors have identified the auction room as a sensible source of new property investments.
But for those unfamiliar with the environment, traditions and protocols, the auction room can seem a forbidding place to enter. This this really should not be the case.
In this session, David Sandeman (the UK's definitive commentator and information source on UK auctions) will debunk the myths and mystique surrounding auctions and prepare the auction buyer for what to expect and why they should take this important property source very seriously.
