Following several courses aimed at agents, arranged by South West Landlords Association and supplied by Training for Professionals it was apparent that a need existed for letting agents and their staff to increase their knowledge, and realise their responsibilities and obligations.
A survey by Citizens Advice Bureau staff at both local and National level confirmed this need.
With sponsorship from Plymouth City Council SWLA intend to run one day and some half day training courses aimed at agents and agency staff. Details will be posted on the website in due course.
Accreditation for agents under the West of England Rental Standard is not yet available but hopefully will be forthcoming in the near future.
