Landlord Accreditation Scotland (LAS) Training

LAS logo 2015The dates for Landlord Accreditation Scotland (LAS) training courses taking place in the Lothians between November and December 2016.

Becoming accredited with LAS, along with regular attendance at courses and information events, provides landlords with knowledge on key issues and how to implement change when required, ensuring they have the confidence to conduct their business in a professional manner.

The range of training courses provided by LAS covers both legislation and best practice in the private rented sector.  It can be very difficult to keep track of the changes to legislation which affect our responsibilities as landlords and agents.  The courses that are available to you cover all of these responsibilities and are updated in line with ever changing legislation.

National Landlord Day

SAL logo 2015

National Landlord Day, the major conference and exhibition from the Scottish Association of Landlords, is the largest gathering of landlords in the UK. The 2016 event will be the ninth year running for this popular event, bigger and better than ever and taking place at Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh on the 8 November.

Feedback from private landlords and agents for previous years has been excellent, including from those who travelled long distances to attend. There are great public transport links to the event and onsite parking for those choosing to drive.

It’s an ideal opportunity for anyone involved in the private rented sector to hear from leading experts in the field, network with colleagues and find out the latest news in Scottish letting. Our guest chair for the day will be BBC Reporting Scotland presenter Sally Magnusson who will introduce our speakers and ensure all the hot topics are fully debated. Speakers will present all the crucial topical updates and information needed by everyone involved in Scottish private rented sector lettings.

The conference team looks forward to hearing from anyone wishing to book for the event. Please visit SAL's website to book online  or just let us know via email or call 0131 564 0100 if you would like us to send an invoice for your place.
