Due to the volume and importance of the legislation and regulations coming into force for Letting Agents and landlords, SWLA ran a Letting Agent Course in partnership with Plymouth City Council at the Future Inn, Plymouth on Tuesday 10th April 2018.
Topics covered in depth included;
Data Protection (GDPR)
Draft Tenant Fee Ban Bill
Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)
Places on the course were limited and booked up very quickly. If you missed the opportunity and would like to be informed of the next Letting Agent Course, please email the SWLA office and we will ensure that you are informed as soon as the next Letting Agent Course date is secured.
For all SWLA course dates and information, please refer to the training area of the SWLA website;
