This seminar will bring together policymakers and key stakeholders to discuss the future for regulation of the private rented sector - looking at key issues around standards and consumer redress. It will be an opportunity for delegates to consider the likely impact of the Tenant Fees Bill on the market, and the further action that might be taken to give more protection to both landlords and tenants.Those attending will also discuss what more might be done to provide greater consumer redress, in light of the Government’s consultation which considered plans for the creation of a single housing ombudsman and options for promoting the use of mediation and out-of-court resolutions.
