Among the speakers addressing this topic will be Derek Horrocks, chair of the National Insulation Association.
Other speakers include Justin Bates, a leading barrister specialising in housing law at Landmark Chambers, who will speak on what planned legislative changes in the sector mean for landlords.

Ben Beadle, chief executive of the National Residential Landlords Association, says: “We are pleased that the minister has agreed to speak at our first national conference and would encourage landlords and letting agents to use this opportunity to question him on the government’s plans for the sector.
“It’s important that he is able to hear from first-hand experience about what is happening on the ground to ensure planned changes really do work for landlords as well as tenants.”
