Today sees the first of three free webinars for landlords run by The Deposit Protection Service to help landlords and letting agents navigate the dispute resolution process.
The 60-minute webinars are open both to customers of The DPS and other deposit protection providers.
Today’s covers the evidence information needed for a dispute, how to best gather and prepare it, as well as the principles adjudicators use to reach a conclusion.
Next Thursday, July 15, the webinar will look at errors landlords commonly make that can affect a dispute outcome.
Then finally on Wednesday July 21 the webinar will probe real-life examples of dispute evidence to test knowledge.
Matt Trevett, managing director at The DPS, says: “We always encourage landlords and letting agents to keep communicating with tenants and come to their own agreement when a tenancy ends.
“Nevertheless, for a small proportion of landlords and letting agents, adjudication does become a necessary step, and our July webinars will cover all the important features of the process to ensure a smooth and efficient outcome. All our webinars feature experienced, legally-trained adjudicators and form part of our ongoing commitment to support landlords, agents and tenants with high-calibre and useful information.”
The DPS says more than 5,000 people have registered for its webinars to date, and that there will be another programme in the autumn.
