Our Landlords Fundamentals course will give you an excellent overview of the entire lettings process and your legal obligations at each point of a tenancy. Rent arrears can be an inevitable part of any lettings business but with successful management it is possible to prevent such a situation occurring. Managing Rent Arrears explores how to avoid arrears and is also a useful guide if your tenant does fall behind with rent. The introduction of GDPR in 2018 saw changes to key obligations in the way that landlords deal with sensitive personal information and the course will explain and clarify the new requirements. Property standards have become more and more complex over recent years and operating a safe lettings business is key to providing secure homes to tenants and avoiding disrepair, accidents and fines. This course goes into depth about what is deemed as a safe and secure property and how you can ensure your properties meet the required standards.
