Chartered Tax Advisor Sean Hughes is the latest speaker to be announced for the RLA’s Future Renting conference, now just a week away.

Sean’s tax advisory company, Comprehensive Tax Planning, specialises in advising property investors to mitigate the effects of recent tax changes that have impacted the sector – primarily section 24.

He will be talking about tax, how it impacts landlords and what you can do to minimise the impact of recent changes.

Sean 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.

There will also be a panel discussion on ‘Tenants in control? Consumer Protection in the PRS’, with high profile industry figures including Karen Buck MP, whose Homes (Fitness) For Human Habitation Bill is currently passing through Parliament,  Property Ombudsman Katrine Sporle  and David Cox, chief executive of ARLA Propertymark.

The session will explore the Government’s plans to force landlords to join a redress scheme, the tenants’ fee banFitness for Human Habitation Bill, and other plans to introduce more consumer protection for tenants.

The conference, next Thursday (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.

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.
