The introduction of civil penalties and Rent Repayment Orders has significantly increased financial penalties that local authorities can apply to landlords and HMO managers who do not meet their obligations. A 'manager' can be a letting/managing agent or a landlord who has a direct involvement in the day to day running of the property. This course goes beyond the basics and is designed to help landlords understand the complex regulations and requirements within the HMO market and assist with planning, researching and identifying potential HMO property. Learn how to avoid the pitfalls and gain practical guidance and tips for HMO landlords to avoid large penalties.
This training course qualifies for 5 continuous professional development (CPD) points which can help towards or maintain your accreditation with the NRLA. If you are interested in becoming an accredited landlord with the NRLA, CPD points are necessary to achieve that status.
NRLA Accreditation recognises landlords who have agreed to maintain professional standards in the management and maintenance of their rented property and deal fairly and professionally with their tenants. Accredited members demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of their responsibilities and obligations and strive to maintain, increase and improve their knowledge of the market through training and development. CPD points are awarded for all activities which improve those attributes and are a requisite of membership of the NRLA Accreditation Scheme.
