Private-rented sector Minister at landlords conference

Most importantly, the Minister is expected to shed some light on recent Government proposals which could have radical consequences for landlords up and down the country. Will these proposals help shape the future of the private-rented sector or discourage greater investment?

The NLA National Conference 2009 will be held at the Holiday Inn Birmingham City on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 November. Other speakers at the NLA National Conference include:

•Professor Tony Crook, Professor of Housing Studies, University of Sheffield.
•Caroline Davey, Deputy Director of Policy and Campaigns, Shelter.
•Ian Potter, Operations Manager, Association of Residential Letting Agents.
•Mark Long, Director, Business Development Research Consultants

David Salusbury, Chairman, NLA, in launching the NLA National Conference 2009, said:

“The NLA National Conference offers all landlords the confidence they need to plan for the future. There is no doubt the sector is set to go through further changes and if landlords want to be on top of their game, this is one event not to be missed. It will be a particular pleasure to welcome Ian Austin MP to the Conference. I am sure many landlords will want to question the latest proposals to affect them.

“Aside from the keynote speakers covering policy and business issues, this year’s Conference will include interactive sessions covering the practical side of lettings led by experts. Everything from taking inventories to tax planning to managing a letting agent will be on the agenda, rounding off with a property investment surgery. All in all, if landlords are serious about the business of letting property, this Conference should not be missed.”
