Why should I attend?
The RTB recognises the invaluable role landlords have in providing homes but also that the legal framework governing the rental sector is complex and continually changing. It can be difficult to manage tenancies and keep up to date with the policy and legislative changes in the sector.
Betterlet: RTB Accredited Landlords will be able to set themselves apart in the rental sector and be recognised as professionals providing a quality service to their tenants while also being confident in how to apply and adhere to the regulatory framework under which they operate their business
These training sessions are provided free of charge. Please note that the Betterlet scheme is currently only open to individual landlords and not property professionals or agents or Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs).
The free training is designed to:
- understand their rights and responsibilities, and help them manage their tenancies correctly
- gain an in-depth knowledge of the Residential Tenancies Act, the legislation that underpins the RTB and the residential rental sector, and
- provide a quality service while applying and adhering to a complex regulatory framework.
What will I learn?
The training session content covers:
What to look out for when starting a tenancy;
The rights and responsibilities for both landlords and tenants during a tenancy;
How to validly set and review rents inside and outside Rent Pressure Zones;
How to validly end a tenancy.
The RTB is currently planning the virtual training scheme schedule for 2022, taking account of Covid-19 restrictions and the changing legislative environment. If you would like to attend a future training event or be kept informed of upcoming Betterlet training sessions, please contact us at email@example.com.
