Hamilton Fraser’s Academy programme has announced its next workshop, on May 14, to target how lettings agents can future-proof their business against the impact of the lettings fee ban.
The event will take place at Borehamwood and the ban comes into effect a few weeks later.
Hosted by Susie Crolla of the Guild of Letting & Management, the workshop will deal with the ban and offer agents strategies to offset negative effects of the measure.
Paul Shamplina, founder of Landlord Action, will speak to agents about attracting new landlords and retaining existing ones, while Sean Hooker, Head of The Property Redress Scheme, will give an update on existing and upcoming legislation and regulation change.
“The idea is to allow business owners to focus their energy on the important elements of this transition, which is going to shape the future of lettings. We want to help take away the sense of panic and provide letting agents with strategies to streamline their processes, gain a better understanding of landlords’ mindsets in the current climate and plan for what’s to come” says Shamplina.
