Lettings in Practice Programme Module 4 - Property Management
The Lettings in Practice programme is designed to enhance the skills of those working in letting agencies by helping them gain a better understanding of what is important in all aspects of landlord and tenant relationships. It is underpinned by references to company procedures, the Letting Agent Code or Practice, and wider legislation.
