    PRS panel debate - Olympia de-brief



    Yesterday, at the incredibly busy and buzzing Landlord and Investment Show at Olympia London, the final of the season, I had the honour of hosting a debate into Government intervention in the private rented sector.

    Representing landlords we had landlord, Conservative Councillor, and Tenant Tax campaigner, James Fraser.

    Representing the landlord association view, we had David Smith, Partner at Anthony Gold Solicitors, and Policy Director of the Residential Landlords Association (RLA).

    From Parliament, we were delighted to welcome Karen Buck MP,  Labour politician, and proposer of the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Bill.  This Bill has been endorsed by the government, has received cross-party support in Parliament and is being supported by the Residential Landlords Association and National Landlord Association as well as Shelter.

    Our fourth panellist was Sheraz Dar, the CEO of CreditLadder. CreditLadder allows a tenant's regular rent payment to count towards building their credit history - something which, until recently, was not possible. Sheraz is an active investor and advisor across a number of start-ups across FinTech and PropTech. His investments include OpenRent where he is also a Non-Executive Director

    The panel sought to discuss Government interventions in the sector, the impact they are having, and where there is common ground for all industry stake-holders and parties to work together to improve standards in the private rented sector.

    You can watch the debate in full in the footer of this thread, but first I caught up with three of the panellists afterwards for a de-brief:


    It is great that the Landlord Investment shows are providing such a great platform for all sectors of the PRS to engage together in this format.

    The 2019 Landlord Investment Show dates have been announced, and you can find out more >>> here.

    There are also a few tickets left to the LIS Awards taking place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 15th November.  Nearly 400 tickets (the capacity of the ballroom) have already been sold, and it is shaping up to be a fantastic evening.  Find out more and buy a ticket >>> here.
