Next month, Hamilton Fraser is launching the Hamilton Fraser Academy, a series of half and full day workshops to offer property professionals advice and education covering the full tenancy lifecycle. The first course, ‘Legal update and compliance’ is aimed at letting agents of all sizes and will be hosted by Susie Crolla of The Letting Training Centre on 22nd November. Due to high demand, this course is now full and a second workshop has been added on 13th December.
Following a raft of legislative changes, letting agents are under increasing pressure to ensure they are legally compliant. The ‘Legal update and compliance’ course will cover some of the most pressing topics, including GDPR, HMO Regulation, Tenant Fee Ban, Deregulation Act 2015, Form 6A (formerly section 21) and Immigration Act 2016. Agents who attend the course will gain CDP points and a certificate of training.
Eddie Hooker, CEO of Hamilton Fraser, comments “With the Private Rented Sector having undergone a significant amount of change over the last year, and with more to come in the year ahead, letting agents and landlords are looking more closely at how they can improve and adapt their businesses to meet the requirements of the market and ensure they are compliant.
With so much conflicting information, we know that the industry can be very confusing, so we have designed a series of workshops hosted by property professionals with years of experience to help agents get it right.”
Hamilton Fraser Academy will also be running a series of workshops on other subjects throughout 2019. The first two will be on ‘Future Proofing Your Letting Business’ and ‘Day to Day Letting & Management’.
