Rubin Lewis O'Brien/Green & Co : Being a Landlord can be hard

With the growing pressure on housing across the UK, it is becoming increasingly important that there is property available to rent.  This means people being prepared to invest time and money in buy to let properties, becoming registered Landlords, undertaking the legal training and dealing with a growing number of legislative and financial changes affecting their investments.

Sometimes just keeping track of all these new laws and financial implications can put people off!

Cwmbran based Rubin Lewis O’Brien solicitors in partnership with Green & Co Accountants have been running a free Landlord Forum since 2015. This event, held bi-monthly at the Parkway Hotel in Cwmbran, provides an opportunity for rental property investors to access all the latest information and regulatory changes at a relaxed and informal meeting. They hear from experts from across a variety of relevant professions, gaining insight and knowledge that can help them make informed decisions for dealing with issues and concerns that plague most landlords from time to time.

Speakers have included the Channel 4 Can’t Pay, Take it Away presenter, representatives from Welsh Water, the Residential Landlords Association, and a ‘Contract Killer’ (specialist in eradication of Japanese Knotweed) to name but a few.  Leanne Flanagan, Tax Senior at Green & Co has also regularly updated landlords on all the latest budget changes and Damian Lines has covered the value and processes involved in estate and other future planning matters.

The event is growing in popularity as word spreads.  The next events are on 31st May and 12th July.  To register contact penny.jarman@rlo.law or Katie@greenandco.com
