Landlord training for Rent Smart Wales

As you will no doubt be aware the date for registration and compliance for the new Rent Smart Wales legislation is looming and you will need to have this all in place before 23rd November 2016. With this in mind we have decided to run a heavily subsidized course so that our landlords can do the training in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and save some money, hopefully making this as painless as possible. If as a landlord you are going to be using a managed service you do not need to complete the full course however we are offering it to everyone to give you the best possible grounding to ensure your investment is protected and your business is as future-proofed as possible. Is the course for you? We have spoken to a great many lanlords and some things are coming up all the time. "We only look after one buy to let so dont need to do the course" or "we dont really manage the property as its a long term tenant and so we just collect the rent" In both cases this is incorrect and you will absolutely have to get registered and do a course to meet the new requirements. If you are managing it for a friend then the waters get even more murky. Unless you are a direct relative you will need a proper agent licence. To get one of these you will need things like client money protection, a sercure deposit account and membership of an appropriate redress scheme. Our advice Whether managing your property or not, we think doing the course is a good idea. Everyone here has done the course and it was a really informatiove course that everyone learned from. In order to make this as painless as possible we have organised a subsidised course open to all. We are paying towards the course and holding two dates at a heavily subsidised price of £60 VAT from the normal £100 VAT As part of the package you get: • The full course training on the day • Full course handout to take away with you • Breakfast with networking opportunities • Lunch • Refreshments throughout the day • Access to some industry experts covering financial planning, tax, legal’s and mortgages The two days we are running are: Thursday 25th August 9am – to 5pm Saturday 10th September 9am – 5pm Spaces are limited and filling up fast so to book onto one of the dates please get in contact ASAP. We very much look forward to seeing you on one of the days and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to let us know on 029 2002 0880.
