Learning to manage your rental property
Published 09/06/14



FOR most landlords, buying a property to rent is the most expensive investment they will ever make — yet the majority of landlords don’t take the time to understand their legal obligations.

There are many rules and regulations surrounding the rental industry and — contrary to what some landlords believe — handing your property over to a letting agent does not, in the eyes of the law, discharge a landlord from any of the responsibilities associated with letting a property.

It’s a big responsibility being a landlord and there are many procedures to consider before handing over the keys to someone else.

If a landlord employs a letting agent, essentially they are giving the agent authority to act on their behalf. So whether or not the agent does anything legally wrong, it is the landlord who will face the consequences.

A simple mistake can prove to be a living nightmare for landlords and now more than ever, there are many savvy tenants ready to find loopholes in the ever changing law. That’s why it’s so important to get things right. Knowing your rights and responsibilities is the first step in protecting yourself and your property.


At Learn2let they understand the importance of getting it right first time. They offer guidance and support in helping landlords manage their most valuable asset.

The Learn2let one-day course takes place at The Henley College with the option to attend evening classes over a three-week period.

The courses are delivered by fully-qualified Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and further education tutors. They work in accordance with the property ombudsman.

Sessions are in small groups aimed at giving landlords the opportunity to ask questions and absorb information. They will provide you with a step-by-step reference manual, which covers topics from finding a tenant to managing the legal procedures. They will also show you working examples of the whole procedure.

You can sign up to the free newsletter giving you the latest updates on the rental law. And if you still decide to use a letting agent you will be safe in the knowledge that you are employing someone who knows what they are doing.

Courses take place at The Henley College. The one-day course runs on both June 26 and July 3 and 4, from 9.30am to 4.30pm.

The three-week evening course takes place on Monday, June 16, 23 and 30. There is currently a discount offer of 15 per cent off the June courses, which means a 120 course is now available for 99.
