The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, will address the Residential Landlords Association’s Future Renting North conference in Manchester on 24 April.
The former cabinet minister and Greater Manchester MP vowed to tackle the housing crisis in the region as one of his key election promises. He has also spoken of plans to create a Good Landlord Scheme to “better regulate private rented sector landlords”.
He will be the headline speaker as part of a packed programme featuring a range of expert speakers who will address delegates on issues including the Housing and Planning Act and Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards.
It will also cover welfare reform and tax with breakout sessions on topics ranging from architectural design to property tech.
The conference will be held at the Concorde Conference Centre in Manchester, with delegates also given the opportunity to take a free tour of the iconic aircraft.
It will welcome anyone with an interest in private rented housing, from landlords with just one property, to those with larger portfolios, letting agency owners, local authority councillors and officers, journalists, and housing charities.
Early bird tickets are now on sale priced at £45 for members and £60 for non-members, including lunch and refreshments.
The one-day Future Renting North conference is the second date in the RLA’s new conference programme. It follows on from the success of the Future Renting Wales event in Cardiff last year, which was attended by more than 200 delegates.
The RLA will also be organising a similar event to take place in London in the autumn.
