Future Renting Wales, the Residential Landlord Association’s annual conference in Cardiff, will be held on November 29th this year.

The second of the association’s conferences in the country will offer landlords a valuable insight into the future of the private rented sector in Wales, with a political heavyweight set to be announced as the keynote speaker.

With 20 per cent of households in Wales expected to be in the PRS by 2031, Future Renting Wales will help landlords understand the challenges up ahead – and how best to negotiate them.

Expert speakers will address delegates on issues including Rent Smart Wales, the Wales fee ban, Welsh market insights and, of course, tax, with the event hosted by BBC Wales favourite Lucy Owen.

Expert Lawyer Dr David Smith will be among those talking on the day, explaining the traps and pitfalls to avoid as Westminster introduces a raft of changes over the next year, with welfare reform, tax and energy efficiency set to have a huge impact.

Also speaking will be the head of the Scottish Landlords Association (SAL) John Blackwood, who will be discussing some of the policies that are already in place in Scotland, that could also be introduced in Wales, and tax expert Sean Hughes.

The conference will be held at Jury’s Inn, Cardiff and is open to anyone with an interest in private rented housing, from landlords with just one property, to those with larger portfolios, letting agency owners, Assembly Members, local authority councillors, journalists, and housing charities.

Douglas Haig, RLA Vice-Chair and Director for Wales who will be speaking at the event said: “More than 200 landlords attended last year’s conference, with feedback overwhelmingly positive.

“The legislative landscape is ever-changing, and it is vital that all residential landlords keep themselves up-to-date, armed with the knowledge they need to continue to run successful businesses in the PRS of the future.”

Tickets are £40 for RLA members and £45 for non-members.
