The first speaker was Douglas Haig, Residential Landlord Association (RLA) Vice Chairman and Director for Wales, a private sector association who offer tailored support for landlords. Mr Haig discussed the upcoming legislative changes and the impact these will have on landlords.

The second speaker was Phil Hathway of Hathway Estate Agents who will be discussing holiday lets.

Speaking before the event Katie Williams of Green & Co Accountants said

“We hope the event will be another success and that all landlords will be correctly informed on the changing legislation and the opportunities surrounding holiday lets. The forums are a great way to communicate with private landlords.

“We hope to help spread the word of bodies such as the RLA and the important service that they can offer landlords.”

Penny Jarman of QualitySolicitors Rubin Lewis O'Brien said the forum aims to build an ethos of support:

“We want landlords to be as informed as possible when it comes to the continual changes in legislation and the different opportunities that are available within the rental market. We hope that through the forum all landlords are continually updated on the ever changing legal and administrative aspects of the buy-to-let market.”
