Housing minister Eddie Hughes will be the keynote speaker at The Landlord Conference 2022 on Tuesday 15th November.

Hosted by the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) in partnership with Landlord Law, the conference will focus on the future of the private rented sector. The event will be chaired by Paul Lewis, presenter of BBC Radio 4’s ‘Money Box’.

During the keynote section of the conference, the Minister is expected to outline the Government’s plans for the sector following the announcement of a Renters’ Reform Bill in last week’s Queen’s Speech.

The conference will also provide guidance on how landlords can best respond to a renewed Government push to improve the energy efficiency of rented housing. Among the speakers addressing this topic will be Derek Horrocks, Chair of the National Insulation Association.

Other speakers include Justin Bates, a leading barrister specialising in housing law at Landmark Chambers, who will speak on what planned legislative changes in the sector mean for landlords.

Ben Beadle, Chief Executive of the NRLA, comments: “We are pleased that the Minister has agreed to speak at our first national conference and would encourage landlords and letting agents to use this opportunity to question him on the Government’s plans for the sector. It’s important that he is able to hear from first-hand experience about what is happening on the ground to ensure planned changes really do work for landlords as well as tenants.”

Tessa Shepperson, Solicitor and Managing Director of Landlord Law Services, comments “We are delighted to be working with the NRLA on this new conference for landlords with keynote speaker Eddie Hughes MP.  It is so important that housing ministers are able to hear directly from landlords and get feedback on their plans for the sector.  The other speakers are equally distinguished, and I am particularly pleased that we will be providing some much-needed help for landlords on energy efficiency.”

A Government minister, Justin Tomlinson MP, will address the Residential Landlords Association’s (RLA’s) Future Renting Wales conference next week.

The Minister for Family Support, Housing and Child Maintenance will be sharing his insights into the future of the private rental sector in a keynote speech at the event on Thursday 29th November, with the Welsh Housing Minister, Rebecca Evans, promising a major announcement for landlords in a video address to delegates.

The RLA’s Future Renting conferences have welcomed hundreds of landlords and property professionals through their doors over the last 12 months, with the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, using the RLA’s Manchester conference to exclusively announce controversial plans to buy up homes from rogue landlords.

Justin Tomlinson MP, whose portfolio includes financial support for housing and Universal Credit, heads a line-up of respected industry experts, who will address the conference in Cardiff on everything from Rent Smart Wales and the tenant fee ban to Brexit.

Speakers include television personality and the Founder of Landlord Action, Paul Shamplina, and expert lawyer Dr. David Smith, while the event is hosted for the second year running by BBC Wales’ Lucy Owen.

The private rental sector in Wales is growing, with 20% of all homes in the country expected to be privately rented by 2020.

And, with heaps of new regulations coming into force, there is no better time for landlords to make sure that they are ahead of the game and fully equipped for the challenges ahead.

The conference will be held at Jury’s Inn, Cardiff next Thursday (29th November) and is open to anyone with an interest in private rental housing, from landlords with a single property, to those with larger portfolios, letting agents and their staff, Assembly Members, local authorities, journalists and housing charities.

Douglas Haig, the Vice-Chair and Director for Wales at the RLA, who will also be speaking at the event, says: “We are delighted to announce Justin Tomlinson as our keynote speaker for this year’s Future Renting Wales conference. More than 200 landlords attended last year’s event, with feedback overwhelmingly positive.

“The legislative landscape is ever-changing, and it is vital that all residential landlords keep themselves up to date, armed with the knowledge they need to continue to run successful businesses in the private rental sector of the future.”

Tickets are £40 for RLA members and £45 for non-members:
