There’s no escaping the fact that the private rental sector has suffered some major blows in recent times.
Landlords have been hit with a barrage of tax changes and new legislation, and it’s now more important than ever that landlords know how to approach these challenges and optimise their property investments.
The Portico & NLA London Landlord Seminar, presented by property expert, Richard Blanco, will bring together leading industry experts to give an honest insight into the private rental market, as well as explaining how to make money from buy-to-let in a more challenging market.
If you’re a London landlord or interested in finding out about the market, make sure to come to our London Landlord Seminar.

What Landlords Need To Know
Carla Sateriale of UK Finance, (previously the Council of Mortgage Lenders), will open the evening, summarising the latest Prudential Regulation Authority changes and why buy-to-let lenders have devised new criteria. Simon Allen of Searchlight Finance will then give his thoughts on how the market and lenders may react to the PRA changes, and the best options for borrowers.
Next to speak will be Portico London estate agent’s Regional Director, Mark Lawrinson, who will give a round-up of the property market in 2017, before giving an interesting house price forecast and a data-driven outlook for the year ahead.
After the break, Mark will look at growing employment and improving infrastructure to pinpoint future property hotspots, before giving a key borough analysis of rental yield and an insight into how to optimise your investment by completely ruling out void periods.

Speaking about the upcoming Portico & NLA London Landlord seminar, Mark Lawrinson, said:
“With the correct planning, you can still make money from property. But unlike pre-2007 and even the past few years, the ability to make money requires great thought and attention rather than being able to ride a rising market.
Landlords and investors now need to surround themselves with professional advice and support from finance and lending experts, property gurus and tax specialists. The Portico & NLA London Landlord Seminar will equip landlords with the expert knowledge and data-led insight they need to evolve and continue to make a success of buy-to-let.”
Following Mark will be a lively panel debate, where industry experts will debate over whether HMOs with their higher yields are now the better option for landlords.
The panel will also be accepting questions from the floor, and there will be opportunity to network with other landlords and enjoy complimentary wine and canapes.
