Comments from some attendees of our Landlord Training Course
“Could have spent a couple of days on the course, it was so interesting.”
“All very informative, thank you.”

“Brilliant thank you very much.”
“Very informative- course covered all aspects of lettings from start of a tenancy to the end. Excellent instructor.”
“Enjoyed the course very much, found out what I didn’t know.”
“Excellent presentation, very worthwhile for many aspects of letting, certainly not just HMO. Would advise anyone having a property to let to attend, even if they use an agent.”
“Money and time well spent.”
“Excellent and informative, have hopefully learnt a lot.”
“Learnt a lot and obviously will nedd to ask more questions of SWLA when I hit problems in the future.”
“Very helpful, thank you.”
“Good course, Learnt quite a lot.”
I am delighted that SWLA have taken this important initiative alongside Plymouth City Council to help drive up standards in the private rented sector in our city and drive out cowboys. Being a landlord is neither easy nor straight forward and getting accredited is a really good way to ensure you are meeting all the legal requirements and that the relationship with your tenant is well managed.
