Landlord and letting agent training

We are unable to deliver this training while our offices are closed. We are revising the training programme and investigating different delivery formats, such as online webinars. 

We hosted two free webinars for landlords and letting agents in autumn 2020. The first covered managing the spread of coronavirus in your rental property. The second was about domestic abuse in rented accommodation. The webinars and associated guidance are available on our information for landlords webpage.

It’s essential that landlords and agents of privately rented accommodation ensure they manage their properties in a business-like manner, and have knowledge of the requirements of private renting and the primary legislation under the Housing Act 2004.  

Should you hold a licence for a house in multiple occupation (HMO) it's necessary to ensure the licence holder is competent and adequately trained.

Delivered by our Enforcement and HMO Licensing team, this one day course will involve workshops delivering a comprehensive understanding of the legislation and technical aspects of managing a property. The course is designed to ensure that you will be left with the knowledge to safely manage your property and will cover:
