July 2018

I recently attended a successful regional meeting held at Preston Marriott with some informative speakers. I think it’s fair to say that some members are wondering whether this was the best career choice, as there are certainly some big challenges for us all at the moment.

The expanding of Selective Licensing has left landlords ill-prepared for the additional costing and the variance between local authorities. It’s difficult for us as agents to predict where this will happen next. Sadly, local authority staff do not seem to be well advised or trained so my advice is check, check and check again.

Elsewhere, GDPR is now a reality – a challenge for us all, not least of which when looking at new business practices. With some pretty hairy fines it’s well worth making sure all staff are fully conversant with some of the simple areas they could trip up in.

For many of us, Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) is now starting to cause some issues for those of us who have cheerfully let F and G properties. Regretfully, this is resulting in some landlords looking to sell – not what we need in an already restricted marketplace. The ARLA Propertymark Fact Sheet has proved very useful for our members locally.

Many members are reviewing their business plans ready for the incoming fee ban. It is interesting and useful to note that there are glimmers of hope regarding some charges which may still be allowed. The area remains upbeat and ready for the summer demand.
