Welcome to the Brent Landlord Forum!
After a very successful Brent Landlord Forum in June with over 400 people attending, we are now back for an even bigger and better one.
Brent Council has started consultation to extend Selective Licensing of privately rented accommodation in other areas of the borough, which would require that privately rented properties not covered by the existing selective, mandatory scheme or the additional licensing scheme should also have a licence. The council is proposing this, having considered problems of anti-social behaviour, poor housing condition, inward migration, deprivation and crime in the borough.
Our main objective is to create a neutral platform where our attendees can interact with the Local Authorities and learn from experienced investors and developers. There is a common perception that it's almost impossible to reach out to the Council which is why we are trying to improve the accessibility between the Licencing Team and our attendees.
This Forum will also be of great value for Investors, Developers, Estate Agents, Architects and all other Property Professionals from Brent but also from neighbouring boroughs like Harrow and Barnet.
Meet our Speakers:
Meet Spencer Randolph - Brent Licensing Team
Spencer Randolph will be joining us from the Brent council Private Housing Service, where he heads up licensing enforcement and regeneration initiatives including grants to Landlords to bring empty properties into use.
Spencer will be providing an update on the Brent licensing schemes.
Meet Tony Jemmott - Brent Licensing Team
Tony has over 25 years in local government and managed private sector housing in Haringey and Newham Councils before joining the LB Brent 18 months ago. He has extensive knowledge of Health and Housing and of the licensing of the private rented sector.
Tony has assisted the above authorities and also with the LB Waltham Forest on their private rented property licensing consultations and on the successful implementation and regulation of their HMO and selective licensing schemes.
He is also actively involved in the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) and English Housing Conditions surveys.
Meet Bernie Wales:
Bernie Wales is a Residential Property Manager with over 30 years’ experience as a successful entrepreneur. He focuses mainly on Leasehold Property Management and Investment.
Having started his career at Sainsburys, he soon transferred into the world of property and by 1980 was responsible for a portfolio of 500+ tenancies in London, together with around 50 commercial investment properties throughout the UK. Four years later he struck out on his own, forming Crabtree Property Management Limited, building up a portfolio of 9,000+ residential units over 18 years as Managing Director.
His current company – BW Residential Property Consultancy Ltd provides services in two main areas; leasehold management … and investment consultancy.
Meet David Clouter:
As a contrarian investor David Clouter probably made more money in prolonged slumps, or right at the bottom of the market, than at other times, but whatever your strategy, it is always useful to know where we are in the cycle, and what's about to happen next.
So if you think that interest rates, building starts, or levels of immigration significantly affect property prices, you might be in for a shock. (They don't, but I will show you conclusively what is the main driver, and how to use it to predict future trends.)
As usual, we will have some fantastic local property businesses showcasing their products and services. If you would be interested in showcasing your business then please send an email to email@example.com or call 02072062691 for more information.
So don't miss out, come and join us for an informative yet fun evening with of course some refreshments and some tasty finger food. Book your free ticket now!
