Portico NLA London Landlord Seminar 2019

October 2, 2019

The most talked about London Landlord Seminar is back on the 20th November 2019!

This year we are back with Richard Blanco, NLA London Representative, and we will be discussing 'Your Money'. Landlords are the only business to be taxed on their turnover; as they continue to face bigger tax liabilities and increased regulatory costs, this year’s seminar looks at how to make your money work harder and your investment go further.

We will provide an update on the rental and sales market in London, plus there will be a chance to network with other landlords, and a detailed panel discussion where property experts will discuss what the abolition of section 21 could bring.

By the end of the evening you’ll have a clear picture on the London market and some reassurance and guidance on how to plan ahead into 2020.

Tickets are £25 or £10 if you’re an NLA Member with your promo code - click here to buy tickets!

Please see the round-up for the evening along with NLA seminar speech topics below:


London Landlord Seminar

Portico NLA London Seminar 20th November. Arrive 6.30pm for 7pm start at the Institute of Directors, 116 Pall Mall, London, SW1Y 5ED

Portico NLA Seminar

London Hotspots & The Housing Market Review | Portico

Where’s hot and what’s not?  In our annual review of the state of the capital's property market, Portico will map out London’s higher and lower yielding boroughs. Portico will be using Portico’s latest number crunching to pinpoint familiar and lesser known hotspots and this year we have a focus on promising localities for higher yielding HMOs.


Getting The Best Mortgage | Jane Simpson, Director, NLA Mortgages

Stress tests and corporate structures have made refinancing increasingly complex.  You can borrow a little bit more with a 5 year fix from “vanilla” buy to let lenders, but should you be capital raising healthier sums with the new cabal of expensive specialist lenders?  Limited company mortgages are often subject to lower stress tests, does that merit forgoing cheaper personal products? Meanwhile with Brexit and economic uncertainty possibly affecting interest rates, should you remortgage to a tracker or to a fix?


Flourish In The New Tax Regime | Mark Stemp, Partner, Crowe UK

Most of us have come to terms with the section 24finance changes that prevent us from setting all of our finance costs against our rental income.  Is there anything else you could be doing to mitigate the impact? How clear are you about the tax pros and cons of limited company and/or personal ownership of property?


Policy & Regulatory Briefing | Meera Chindooroy, NLA Head of Policy

Our annual digest of all of the most up to date policy nuggets in a lively presentation from the NLA’s policy expert, fresh from regular meetings with senior government officials where Meera does her very best to champion your cause.


Panel Discussion - After Section 21

Meera will be joined by Robert Nichols, Director, Portico

Qasim Bandali, Senior Practitioner, Thames Reach

All three main political parties and many housing charities say they wish to see an end to no fault eviction.  Research by Capital Economics for the NLA tells us that the abolition of section 21 could cause the private rented sector to shrink by 20%.  This would result in rising rents and - as landlords become choosier about who they will accommodate on unlimited tenancies - even fewer properties for tenants claiming benefits.  What could the future look like without section 21 and is the end of no fault eviction inevitable?
