Legal Update for Letting Agents – Perth

Event Date: August 29, 2019

In partnership with Landlord Accreditation Scotland. logo

The last few years have been incredibly busy for letting agents.  Letting agent registration has had a huge impact in terms of both time and cost.  In addition, tenancies and the grounds for eviction have changed and the First-tier Tribunal now has jurisdiction for evictions.

Ensuring ongoing compliance with the Letting Agent Code of Practice is essential and we are delighted to bring you a series of letting agent updates that are designed to take stock of where we are now, the lessons learned and what is still to come.

Our updates will provide you with information on:

  • the new First-tier Tribunal procedures (time to pay, interest, service etc.)
  • managing complaints/letting agent code compliance cases – examples and lessons learned
  • employment matters – advertising for qualified staff, recovering training costs, employee breaches of the letting agent code of practice

There will also be a Mock Court – what really happens at the First-tier Tribunal.

Lawyers from our firm will be on hand to answer all your crucial questions and you will also have the opportunity to share your experiences with other lettings professionals.
