Landlord and Agent Legislation in the Pipeline 2018

We thought it would be useful to provide a summary of upcoming legislation in 2018 affecting landlords and agents. This will be useful for our own use as a reminder for dates and articles too!

It’s quite a busy year coming up but some of the legislation in the pipeline and on this page may not be in force until next year.

The list only includes legislation which is or could come into force this year (although some may be next year). The headings indicate a brief title, commencement date if known and application (England or Wales).

There have been some calls for evidence in relation to regulation of managing agents and client money protection becoming mandatory but they are not included here whilst we await further information.

We will post more blogs when legislation does become effective but in the meantime if you would like to discuss the impact of this legislation on your particular situation please do call either Jane or Chris on 01284-702626

With thanks to LandlordsGuild  27th June 2018.
