Anne Frost, the Government’s lead officer for PRS housing policy, will address the Residential Landlords Association’s (RLA) Future Renting conference in London next month.

As deputy director for the PRS within the Ministry of Housing (MHCLG), Anne has overall responsibility for implementing government policy and feeding opinion from stakeholders – including landlords – back to Government ministers.

Her address to the Future Renting conference will offer exclusive insight into the way the department is thinking and the legislative change up ahead, and is a golden opportunity for landlords and agents to ask questions and share their views on the tidal wave of legislation change on the horizon.

The event, 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.

The one-day conference will be held at Imperial College London’s Kensington Campus and comes hot on the heels of successful events in Wales and Manchester.

Anne will be joined at the conference by big names including Karen Buck MP, whose Homes (Fitness) For Human Habitation Bill is currently passing through Parliament and Property Ombudsman Katrine Sporle.

Other speakers include 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.

Dr David Smith, partner at Anthony Gold Solicitors and RLA policy director will examine the impact the upcoming legislation changes will have on you and your businesses and RLA PEARL senior researcher Dr Tom Simcock will talk about how research work with landlords and agents is changing hearts and minds in Westminster.

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.

Indeed, Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham used the RLA’s last conference to exclusively announce his vision for the PRS – including controversial plans to buy up homes from rogue landlords to force them out of the region.

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.

John Stewart, RLA policy manager said: “With so much change on the cards over the coming months and years the question landlords need to be asking is, can I really afford to miss this?

“There is no doubt it is a tough time to be a landlord – and it’s set to get tougher. The RLA’s Future Renting Conferences will help you when it comes to identifying potential issues ahead of changes taking place and help guide you in the right direction.”
