The Residential Landlords Association (RLA) has announced that the Welsh cabinet secretary responsible for housing policy, Carl Sargeant, will be the headline speaker at a conference on the future of the private rented sector in Wales, to be held in Cardiff next month.
The Future Renting Wales conference is being set up with a view to helping landlords understand increasingly complex new laws and regulations including the Rent Smart Wales scheme, the introduction of new standard tenancy agreements and new safety and minimum property standards on the horizon.
Aside from Sargeant, there will be various speakers at the event, including RLA policy director David Smith, Anne Rowland of Rent Smart Wales, Douglas Haig, RLA director for Wales, and others.
The conference, which will take place on Thursday 30th November, will be held at Jury’s Inn in 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 commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity for delegates to hear from expert speakers, coming together to update them on best practice and the many forthcoming changes to the sector.”
