Resolutions can often be hard to stick to, but if you are making a promise to keep up to date with the latest landlord legislation, well, that needn't be a chore - we've got just the thing to help!
We've teamed up with our friends at the National Landlord Association to bring you a series of webinars, designed to advise and support you in keeping up to date with the most confusing elements of landlord legislation.
Covering everything from tenant abandonment to deposit resolution, the CPD-accredited webinars are a simple way to get a thorough understanding of sometimes confusing elements of landlord life.
As well as toolbox talks from NLA or industry experts, the webinars also include simple presentations that you can watch back, and the opportunity to ask live questions. All questions are also answered in full by the great team from the NLA's Advice Line, and posted anonymously on the accompanying blog post here on the Landlord University - so you can refer back to them should you need to (and they may offer help to another landlord in a similar situation)!
All webinars are free to take part in, and you can take part using a computer, tablet or smartphone - if you are on the move you can even dial in and listen via a phone - although you won't be able to see the presentation! However, if you can't make it, a recording is available to view after the event, just register and we'll send you a link.
We've collated the very best of 2017's webinars to get you started. Keep in touch for a full schedule for 2018 - we're planning events looking at dealing with troublesome tenants, pesky pests, tax management, squatters rights, tenancy agreements and much more - do get in touch here if you have any ideas for topics you'd like to see covered.
