Sprowston Manor Hotel
with 5 hours CPD
If you want solid legal training for you and your staff - look no further. We have 10 legal talks, all from specialist lawyers and trainers to make sure you are bang up to date with the law.
This is a period of unprecedented change for landlords - ignorance of the new rules can result in prosecutions and the inability to evict non paying tenants.
As well as the talks, our conferences have interesting exhibitors (such as TDS - our main sponsors) and ARLA. The day is also a good opportunity to network with like minded people and share problems and solutions.
The conference will be held at the delightful Sprowston Manor hotel - just outside Norwich with masses of free on site parking. Why not stay on for the weekend and enjoy the wonderul facilities such as the on site golf course, swimming pool and spa, and take the opporutnity to explore the medieval town of Norwich and the surrounding countryside (including the National Trusts Blicking Hall and the world famouse Norfolk Broads).
