Industry leaders to put renters reforms under microscope

Landlords and lettings agents are invited to join a series of webinars looking at different aspects of the white paper.

A line-up of industry experts are set to examine the Renters’ Reform White Paper in a series of webinars aimed at lettings agents and landlords.

Greg Tsuman, David Smith, and Paul Shamplina will feature in a three-part webinar programme hosted by lettings proptech platform Goodlord.

Tsuman, lettings director at Martyn Gerrard and President-Elect for ARLA Propertymark, kicks off the series today at 10am. He will discuss how “a single system of periodic tenancies” could impact the private rented sector with series’ host Oli Sherlock, director of insurance at Goodlord.

In September, David Smith, partner at JMW Solicitors, will discuss the planned abolition of Section 21 and proposed new grounds under Section 8 in the second webinar of the series.

Then TV star Paul Shamplina, Chief Commercial Officer at Hamilton Fraser and founder of Landlord Action, will round off the series in late September, with a focus on how the new legislation will be enforced, including proposals to introduce an ombudsman covering all private landlords, and a property portal to improve compliance.

Massive change

“Nevertheless, this is a massive change to the status quo and will require most agents to review their processes in order to adapt to the looming changes.”
