Training and Development: Afternoon Sessions

By gemmacampuslife 01 Dec 2018

These sessions will be held on Tuesday 9th April from 13:30...


Assured Shorthold Tenancy Masterclass 
Hilary Crook 
Hatch Legal
Red 5

Generation Rent has made the politicians aware that something must be done to tackle problems in the quality and availability of housing. The government is working on a “comprehensive package” of housing measures … one of which seems to be to make it increasingly more difficult for landlords to recover possession. This can have a serious impact on short-term lettings in the summer. More than ever, having the right paperwork is vital to the success of renting in the private sector. Landlords who get it wrong may never be able to recover possession if the tenant is not at fault, and could face fines or prosecution.

This workshop invites delegates to bring their own agreements and procedures to be put to the test, and the speaker will give practical tips on how to close up any loopholes.

Private Sector Accommodation Providers are now more student-friendly than Universities: why is that?

What steps have private providers taken to improve the service they give to students within their accommodation in recent years and in what ways do these exceed current provision by universities?
