David Sandeman to chair 'The Great Landlord's Debate' at The Property Investor Show
Join 'The Great Landlord's Debate'
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.
- 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.
