Why our central Bristol lettings agency loves the Landlord Expo event

At City Rental Services, keeping up with current housing legislation and adding service providers in the lettings sector in Bristol can be a time-consuming job.

But it’s essential, to make sure we give our tenants and landlords the very best letting information we can obtain.

With that in mind, we recently attended one of our favourite annual events in Bristol, the Landlord Expo 2012 which was held this year at UWE.

The Expo was well organised, easy to get to, and offered an excellent housing industry showplace. It’s an event we usually attend every year, for the brilliant networking opportunities, introductions to new service providers for the lettings sector in Bristol, plus education on housing legislation updates.

This year was especially useful for finding out additional information about the new rules in place around the Localism Act, and the stalls managed by www.mydeposits.co.uk and www.thedisputeservice.co.uk proved to be really useful.

As a substantial letting agent in Bristol with many letting-only landlords, we know that they use the services of www.depositprotection.com and www.mydeposits.co.uk.

This is crucial in keeping tenants deposits correctly protected and for landlords to keep informed about changes in legislation around tenancy deposits.

The networking with local service providers was excellent, too – we connected with the fantastic Junk Buster at the Expo. This will be a particularly useful commercial contact when it comes to the imminent student handover period in the Bristol letting sector, which forms a large part of our let housing portfolio in Bristol.

All in all, another highly successful Landlord Expo – well done!
