Changes to the Gas Safety Regulations The Impact of the Electrical Safety Regulations HMOs and Legislative Change Client Money Protection The Energy Performance Regulations - April 2018 & April 2020
The PM Session focuses on reviewing business practices in order that your letting agency is ready for the Tenant Fee Ban (Future Proofing Your Letting Business). This course begins with Reflection on existing practices, moves on to the Draft Bill and the Fee Ban, in particular the Prohibited and Permitted Fees.
The main element deals with the current fees charged by letting agents to their landlords. The emphasis will be on what services the letting agent offers and how a letting agent values their worth. It is surprising for so many letting agents and property managers that in the grand scheme of things, their monthly commission is quite low. With the Government looking to abolish the fees charged to tenants, it is crucial that letting agents focus on the way they intend to run their businesses in the future.
