Bath recently played host to an enlightening and insightful gathering for landlords, the Bath Landlord Conference, held at the prestigious Francis Hotel on 22nd November 2023. This event, spearheaded by Reside director and ARLA Propertymark Regional Executive Toby Martin, was an essential evening for landlords seeking to navigate the evolving landscape of property regulations and investment strategies.

A notable highlight of the event was Mike Hansom’s address. As a Consultant Solicitor at BLB Solicitors, Hansom delved into the intricacies of Section 8 evictions, a topic gaining prominence as Section 21 faces abolition under the Renters Reform Bill. His expertise demonstrated how tenancies will be ended by landlords in the future, offering clarity and understanding amidst the regulatory shifts.

Ellie Donaghy, a professional property investor, brought bundles of energy and passion to proceedings. Her invaluable insights and proven strategies for identifying and maximizing property investment opportunities left attendees inspired and equipped for success in their ventures.

The event, attended by approximately 40 local landlords, fostered an environment of learning and engagement, with many attendees remaining behind to network after the talks had finished.
