Professionalism in Property

Birmingham 17 September 2019

3.5 hours formal CPD

Behaving ethically is clearly at the heart of what it means to be a professional, and you could put yourself and your firm at risk if you do not.

With recent updates and changes to standards and the evolving landscape of ‘trust’ in professions and commercial markets, the Professionalism in Property Roadshow will provide much needed guidance and advice around the current standards and best practice which the profession needs to adopt and implement to uphold trust with clients and drive ethical standards across the property sector.

Our roadshows will enable members to hear the latest policy and thinking behind ethics, competence, anti-money laundering, client money, conflicts of interest, data handling and cybercrime, and finally the current and future regulatory environment.
Attendees will also benefit from meeting the Standards and Regulation team on the day and they will be available to take your individual questions and assist with your queries to help you put policy in practice.

RICS Residential Landlord and Tenant Essential Update 2019

London 2 October 2019

3.5 hours formal CPD

RICS Residential Landlord and Tenant Roadshow returns in 2019 after its successful launch last year. This half day event will discuss the latest developments in the sector and is geared towards residential property managers, managing agents and estate agents.

Continual legislative changes and developments affecting this sector have led to high levels of uncertainty, and so It is more crucial than ever to remain at the forefront of your profession to remain compliant and avoid sanctions. From incoming regulation of property agents, to the recent Tenant Fees Act 2019 and upcoming changes to MEES in April 2020; these changes have a huge impact on agents.

This year’s event will not only address these key developments, but also include a case study highlighting best practice and technological innovation.  The day begins with a residential property market update, giving a national and regional picture of sales, lettings and built-to-rent markets in your sector. Fire safety for property managers will also be discussed and the day closes with the RICS professional standard on Client Money Handling, along with practical guidance for you to implement in your practice.
