If you are letting a residential property it is crucial to have a legal understanding of the main issues involved. There are many requirements placed on landlords by the law, with failure to meet these leading to hefty fines and even criminal charges. Designed to take you through the complete lettings process from start to end of a tenancy, we cover all aspects of tenancy and property management; whether you are creating a tenancy, dealing with rent arrears or ensuring the safety of your property, the course will provide the clarification needed for landlords about your responsibilities and obligations, taking you through the key foundations of being a landlord in relation to both your property and your tenants.
As a requirement for NRLA accreditation, the course will also include an optional assessment which underpins the learning. The assessment comprises of 24 multiple choice questions delivered via our eLearning platform. The time limit is 30 minutes and the pass mark is 75%. eClassroom delegates will be emailed log in details for the assessment on the day of the course and will have 30 days to complete it. eLearning delegates have until the course licence runs out to complete the assessment. Upon successfully passing the assessment you will qualify for 5 core CPD points which will be automatically recorded in your accreditation record. The successful completion of the assessment may be required for various licensing schemes. Please consult your local authority for clarification.
