Agents get lettings updates at seminar

Letting agents will be able to discover all the latest news in the rental market at a free council event running later this month.

Cherwell District Council is running the Letting Agents' Seminar on Thursday, 29 June. It is a chance for agents to keep updated on the latest best practice in the industry and get free information and advice from council and third-party experts. 

It follows on from a similar, successful event which took place last year and will cover industry news, the latest legislation, and issues such as licensing of houses in multiple occupation and electrical safety. 

Cllr John Donaldson, Cherwell's lead member for housing, said: "An efficient private rental sector is an essential part of housing provision in the district, and this event will be a great chance for housing professionals to update their knowledge of their responsibilities and keep abreast of the latest news. 

"We are fortunate to count on some very good letting agents in the district, and are keen to support them in offering an excellent level of service to both landlords and renters, so that people can enjoy safe, happy homes and well run tenancies. 

"Lots of the rules and guidelines relating to rental properties have had recent updates, and it's important that agents stay up to date with these. There will also be time for in-depth discussions of any issues that attendees may need to raise, so we would urge as many agents as possible to come along."

To deliver the latest information to attendees, Cherwell has teamed up with representatives of UKALA (The UK Association of Letting Agents) and NAPIT, a Government-approved accreditation service for electricians and other trades, who will be delivering presentations at the event. 

The seminar will take place on Thursday, 29 June from 2.00pm to 4.30pm at Bodicote House, OX15 4AA.
