Landlords from across Essex and the South East have been given an update on the latest legal and tax changes at an event hosted by award-winning firm Palmers Solicitors.
Property investors joined Palmers’ in-house specialists at the event held at the South Woodham Ferrers Council Offices, where they were given an overview of residential lettings, fraud, mortgage issues and Stamp Duty Land Tax.
The team of experienced solicitors were also joined by Rachiel Cabrelli, a member of the Citizens Advice Bureau team for Basildon and Thurrock, who offered guidance on the replacement of Housing Benefit with Universal Credit.
Robert Wybrow and Adam Cohen of Maynard Heady LLP Chartered Accountants also spoke at the event and shared their expertise on the latest taxation legislation affecting landlords.
Tim Steele, a Partner at Palmers Solicitors, said: “There has been a boom in second home ownership and landlords in recent years, but with this, has come the desire for more knowledge on the tax and legal implications of property investment.
“This latest event provided an excellent grounding for experienced landlords and those who have previous experience in the sector.
“Many of those who attended discussed how they had benefited from this insightful talk and I would like to thank our team and fellow speaker s for delivering such a riveting presentation.”
