Following on from the Queen’s Speech at the State Opening of Parliament yesterday, 21st of June, Paul Shamplina and Eddie Hooker sit down to discuss their opinions on direction the new government with regards to the property industry and how they think this will influence the industry.
As CEO of the Hamilton Fraser Group, Eddie wears both his Property Redress Scheme and mydeposits hat to discuss the tenant fee ban and capping of tenancy deposits, discussing whether there will be any immediate impact on the market.
The show was packed full of delegates and there were over 100 exhibition stands in attendance. Landlords were able to sit in on a number of various seminars, presentations and talks throughout the day; one even from our very own Paul Shamplina. Amongst those attending were a number of new technology start-ups such as Purple Bricks, Pad and No Agent, who aim to really disrupt the market in the way tenants rent properties.
NLA Chairwoman Carolyn Uphill, who was on the panel of industry experts that included former Conservative leader, Iain Duncan Smith, gave her views on the current market. Other contributors to this podcast were letting agent and founder of Rolfe East Estates, Rolfe East and charismatic landlord Kofi on the industry with questions such as ‘Do you have any concerns for the marketing in the short to medium term?’ to get the discussion rolling.
