Landlord Law Conference
I promised you some news about our 2013 Landlord Law conference last week, and am pleased to announce that the Conference will take place on 15 March 2013 at the Athenaeum in Bury St Edmunds.
We have a packed program, full of specialist property solicitors, Property Tribunal Chairs, and former tenancy deposit adjudicators. Plus Ben and myself. Speakers details here.
Our lead sponsors are TDS and we are enormously grateful to them for their support. Sponsors details are here.
Half price Early Bird
As it is a Landlord Law conference we are giving preferential treatment to Landlord Law members, and Easy Law students. So anyone who is a current member or student on an Easy Law course can attend at half price (ie £90 instead of £180 incl VAT).
