Over 450 buy-to-let landlords and property investors attended the Olympia Conference Centre in London last week where they were able to obtain free expert advice to help guide them with their investments.
The National Landlord Investment Show attracted a diverse range of existing and prospective buy-to-let investors, with visitors able to attend seminars and stands covering all the biggest industry issues from the phasing out of mortgage interest relief to Brexit and its impact on the private rented sector.
The show featured a series of expert property panel discussions, including guest speaker Iain Duncan Smith (IDS), former Secretary of State for Work and Pensions 2010-2016.
A number of topics were discussed, including universal credit, the Autumn Budget, market trends and interest rates.
IDS said that he had been lobbying the chancellor Phillip Hammond in advance of the publication of his first Autumn Statement on 22 November, and urged landlords to write to him with their thoughts and fears.
IDS also spoke further about Universal Credit, tax changes and which conditions can work in the favour of the landlord now and in the future.
The event also saw over 100 Property related services exhibit, in addition 37 seminars on a broad range of subjects in PRS were delivered throughout the day including a packed auditorium with David Smith, economist editor of The Sunday Times, who delivered an outlook for landlords including, interest rates, Brexit and the Budget.
