Free training for landlords with the support of the NRLA

A council in the north of England is providing landlords with a variety of free training.

The event will cover the following:

- Pre-tenancy and liability for energy performance certificates, taxes, and insurance.

- Landlord responsibilities include tenancy agreements, fee bans, gas safety, houses with multiple occupancy and licencing.

- Property standards: housing health and safety grading system, repairs, moisture, and risk assessments.

- Creating various types of tenancy agreements, deposits, and rent setting;

- Tenancy responsibilities, such as regular visits, tenant obligations, and anti-social behaviour;

- Terminating a tenancy, including notices, options for tenant departure, possession, and eviction procedures.

A spokesperson for the council says: “Whether you are a new landlord embarking on this journey for the first time, or a landlord with many years' experience, this programme is suitable for you.

"It is designed to provide detailed knowledge of all the key areas of renting and tenancy management and to prepare you to deal with many of the challenges that lie ahead.  

“Property standards have become more and more complex over recent years, and operating a safe lettings business is key to providing secure homes to tenants and avoiding disrepair, accidents, and fines.

"This course goes into depth about what is deemed as a safe and secure property and how you can ensure your properties meet the required standards.

“As a council, our aim is to protect both landlords and tenants to ensure that necessary standards are maintained and that both groups are protected, and we believe attendance at this course will help ensure that aim is met.”

Places are limited and will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Book your place on the NRLA website.
