A high profile and respected lettings sector legal expert is inviting questions from agents at a webinar next week - and he’ll be explaining why a new international privacy law is likely to impact the industry.
David Smith, a partner at JMW Solicitors and legal counsel for the National Residential Landlords Association, will present a free webinar with repairs and maintenance software provider Fixflo and dive into new laws and important cases affecting the industry. Smith is also encouraging registered agents to pre-submit questions ahead of the virtual event.
Among the confirmed topics is a recent High Court case relating to the controversial Breathing Space and mental health crisis moratoria. There will also be discussion on the administrative pitfalls that agents should be aware of when they handle rent arrears, plus key considerations when an agent outsources property management to a third party in order to minimise risks and operate a compliant practice.
