    RLA Property Tax Course

    As a landlord do you know what tax to pay, when to pay or how you can reduce the bill? This course will help you answer these questions and many more about property tax.

    Delivered by best-selling author of ‘How to Save Property Tax’ and practicing chartered accountant Carl Bayley, the course gives a detailed understanding about how tax rules work and offers practical advice on how to save tax when renting out property.

    Landlords are among the thousands of taxpayers wasting billions in tax because they do not understand the rules and many admit that they haven’t done anything to stop wasting tax. Clearly, many property investors are unaware of their eligibility and entitlement to deductions and reliefs.

    This course aims to change that by giving an in-d...read more

With example forms and useful links, landlords and agents will be more confident in what can be a worrying time.

    RLA Property Repairs Course

    Understanding which repairs a landlord is responsible for can be a complex area. Standards in rented accommodation vary greatly, along with expectations, and it is often the issue of repairs that can make or break a landlord/tenant relationship. Awareness of which problems you are obliged to put right, and what you can expect of your tenants, makes for easier management.

    This course will explain what a repair is and break down the key pieces of legislation so that landlords and agents will have a clear understanding of their obligations. It will give delegates an opportunity to discuss those grey areas; do you have to repair the broken shower? Do you really have to unblock the toilet? It will also iron out exactly what we can expect of our tenants in return and what extra steps yo...read more

    RLA Managing Rent Arrears Course

    When letting a property, rent arrears can be a cause of great stress to a landlord as the impact of non-payment of rent is immediate and affects both landlord income and profit margins. Whilst many landlords have mortgages in addition to maintenance, insurance and other regular costs, often rent payments will be their main or only source of income.

    The course will explore the different ways in which to manage rent arrears should you fall into them, protect against rent arrears and minimising the risk of occurrence. Prevention is better than cure, so it is vital to select the right tenants and then build effective relationships with them to reduce the likelihood of arrears.

    Should you find yourself in a situation where rent payments cease, our rent arrears management course &...read more

    RLA Property Standards And Safety Course

    Is your property up to current standards?

    The most important legal obligation for the condition of rented properties is not concerned with whether or not your premises are in good repair, but its effect on the health and safety of the occupants and visitors.

    Clearly repair is important as legal action may be taken by tenants, but premises which are in good repair can still result in prosecution so it is essential to create a safe and healthy environment for your tenants and visitors.

    The course will walk you through a typical dwelling, outline the most common rating system issues and how to deal with them. It will outline the law, contained in the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS), and investigate common issues which landlords and agents may fail to consi...read more
