NLA & Portico Seminar Presentation Slides

November 24, 2015

Didn’t manage to get a ticket for the much-talked about NLA & Portico Seminar 2015? Don’t fret - we’ve compiled the presentations given by each of the industry experts on the night, to bring you the content you’ve been asking for!

The seminar took place on the 17th November at the prestigious IoD, and over 300 landlords, NLA members and Portico clients turned up for the event. It was a brilliant evening, with informative speeches from a host of speakers.

Richard Blanco - the London Representative of the NLA - hosted the evening, beginning with a regulatory round up of new legislations and changes, including tax, budget and immigration changes, smoke alarm and HMOs changes and The Deregulation Act.

Carolyn Uphill - Chairman of the NLA - took to the stage to give an encouraging speech about challenges the private rental sector faces and the ‘untold story about good landlords.’

Mark Lawrinson finished the speeches with a detailed London market review. He discussed the likelihood of a housing crisis by looking at what happened in the 2007 housing crisis, and comparing it to the current market.

He then went on to give a fascinating talk on yields - and where in London you can find the best yields. He also shared Portico’s new interactive yield calculator with the audience (which we will be launching very soon) - a tool that will allow landlords to target their investment at postcode or street level.
