The Residential Landlords Association has announced the date for its first Rent Smart Wales course for landlords, which will be held in Cardiff on February 10.
The association is one of the first providers to be given approval to provide mandatory Rent Smart Wales Landlord Licensing Training for landlords in Wales.
This course, which covers the main aspects of renting out and managing private accommodation in Wales, is for landlords only and is a requirement of the licensing process of Rent Smart Wales.
All landlords who rent out property in Wales have to register with Rent Smart Wales and as part of the Rent Smart Wales licensing agreement licence holders are required to have completed approved training – meaning they can successfully manage tenancies within the law and maintain the rented property in good repair.
Rent Smart Wales was brought in on November 23, 2015 and landlords have been given 12 months to comply.
The RLA represents more than 40,000 private sector landlords throughout England and Wales. The course is delivered by trainers approved by Rent Smart Wales and landlords receiving training in this environment will also have the opportunity to meet and share experiences with other landlords.
The one-day classroom course on February 10 will be held at the Park Inn in Cardiff city centre between 9.30am and 4.30pm.
A second course will be held at the Ramada Plaza in Wrexham on February 18.
Future dates will continue to be released on the Rent Smart Wales training page and Welsh-language training courses will also be available.
Fees are £45 for members and RLA Accreditation Scheme members and £95 for non-members. A special deal is also available to non-members, offering the course and a one year membership of the RLA for just £90 when booking.
