In this episode of Listen Up Landlords, presenters NRLA Chief Executive Ben Beadle (@BeadleBen) Richard Blanco (@richardblanco_) shine the spotlight on the progress of the Renters (Reform) Bill, promising the biggest shake up of the PRS in decades.
Ben and Richard are joined by Unipol chief executive Paddy Jackman, Tim Briggs, managing director of Legal Mentor and landlord Nick Duncan to discuss the very latest on the Bill’s progress through Parliament, and the potential implications for landlords. (Please note, the podcast was recorded just as the committee stage was coming to an end.)
Covering everything from the courts, issues around student lets and recent changes to LHA rates, the panel discussion also addresses concerns over the proposed timetable for change.
