Free event for agents will provide education on leaseholds

Agents in the north-west have the opportunity to attend a free event designed to broaden their knowledge of the UK’s leasehold system.

It is being put on in Manchester next month by the Association of Leasehold Property Enfranchisement Practitioners (ALEP) and hosted by law firm Irwin Mitchell.

This is the first regional event ALEP has presented and the Association plans to roll out a programme of regional seminars next year.

As agents will know, leasehold is currently a much-debated topic and high on the political agenda.

At this event, enfranchisement experts will be providing invaluable insights into this niche sector.

There will also be latest case law and an update on the Government’s and Law Commission’s ongoing consultations on potential reform and its implications for those operating in the sector.

This half-day seminar is on Wednesday, November 7, at the offices of Irwin Mitchell at One St Peter’s Square, Manchester, between 2pm and 5pm.

It will be followed by a drinks reception and networking.

Anna Bailey, ALEP’s director and co-founder, said: “The north-west has a high number of leasehold properties and it is imperative that property professionals operating in the area have a firm grip of leasehold law, which can be very complex.

“The Association has recently welcomed several new members from Manchester and the surrounding areas, so it made sense to deliver our first regional event here.

“ALEP promotes education and we aim to help professionals in this sector develop the skills needed to tackle the intricacies of leasehold enfranchisement.

“This event will enable professionals in Manchester – and the wider north-west area – to expand their expertise.”

Whilst this is a free to attend event, spaces are limited and will be allocated strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.
