The Mortgage Rollercoaster – Prospects for Buy To Let In 2024  with Deeksha Shah, Mortgage Consultant, GetGround

It’s been a tough 12 months for landlords with or seeking mortgages.  As Bank Base Rate starts to fall, what are the prospects for the buy to let market.  If you are product switching or looking for new finance, timing could be a key issue in 2024. And how low could rates settle in 2025?

2.30pm Permitted Development Opportunities with Peter Higginbottom, Founder & Managing Director, Planning Insight

Some landlords and developers are taking advantage of permitted development rights to change use from Commercial to Residential.  Prior approval is still required but what are the challenges?  Peter will take us through the planning journey and offer some top tips.

3pm Extended Networking Break

3.40pm Panel Discussion – The Legacy Of Licensing & Article 4 with Peter Higginbottom, Founder & Managing Director, Planning Insight; John Williams, Regional Lettings Director, Portico; Priya Shah, East London Based Landlord & Russell Moffatt, Founder, Metastreets.

It’s 12 years since former Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales audaciously introduced borough wide selective and additional licensing. Housing campaigners hailed it as an important means of improving property conditions and reining in criminal landlords.  Many property professionals argued this was an abuse of the 2004 Housing Act provisions and that intelligence-led enforcement was preferable to the costly bureaucracy of council run licensing.  Schemes quickly spread to all East London boroughs and many have also restricted the creation of new HMOs through Article 4 Directions.  How have these measures changed the private rented sector in East London? Is it still a good place to invest and what advice could help existing landlords and local authorities succeed?

4.20pm The State Of the Private Rented Sector  with Ben Beadle, Chief Executive, NRLA
