David Cox, Chief Executive of ARLA Propertymark will address the RLA’s Future Renting conference in London next week.
David joined ARLA, Association of Residential Letting Agents, in January 2014 and has worked alongside a board of industry professionals to transform ARLA into ARLA Propertymark, which protects consumers through measures including Client Money Protection and campaigns for mandatory regulation of the lettings industry and increased professional standards.
David will be part of a panel delivering a session on ‘Tenants in control? Consumer Protection in the PRS’.
The session will explore the Government’s plans to force landlords to join a redress scheme, the tenants’ fee ban, Fitness for Human Habitation Bill, and other plans to introduce more consumer protection for tenants.
The conference, on September 13th, will be the RLA’s first in the capital and will be hosted by LBC legend Clive Bull, award-winning presenter of the Property Hour.
David will be joined at the conference by big names including Anne Frost, deputy director for the PRS at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), property expert Kate Faulkner, who will be delivering a session on market prospects and Richard Tacagni of London Property Licensing who will be giving delegates the lowdown on local licensing schemes, which continue their relentless march across the country.
Hundreds of landlords and property professionals have already attended RLA conferences – with excellent feedback on both the content and quality of those presenting.
In addition to the conference programme itself there will also be the opportunity to meet other landlords and agents, share your experiences and pick up advice, support and offers from a range of exhibitors, with lunch and refreshments included.
The conference welcomes anyone with an interest in private rented housing, from landlords with just one property, to those with larger portfolios, letting agency owners, local authority councillors and officers, journalists, and housing charities.
