Competent Agent Part C

This course revises previous topics covered in parts A and B of the course and introduces the remaining subjects necessary for letting agents to work on a day-to-day basis with limited supervision.

Attendees will revise and deepen their knowledge of essential topics, such as Assured Shorthold Tenancies. They will also learn more about more complex topics, such as houses in multiple occupation, special clauses and tax. Delegates will also be introduced to the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) and break clauses, options to renew and forfeiture, as well as the role of the Property Ombudsman.

Audience

Letting agents who have completed parts A and B of the course and wish to operate independently within their roles.
