The MorfittSmith Landlord Evening Goes Digital
In 2020, COVID-19 drastically changed the UK lettings market. Millions of workers found themselves out of work and many businesses ceased trading altogether, meaning a lot of people fell into rent arrears.
In the wake of this uncertain situation, we hosted our second Landlords Evening of the year to give our landlords the best possible support and advice through this crisis.
These evenings provide an opportunity for our Fully Managed Landlords to get an exclusive update from industry experts on what changes to expect in the lettings market and UK Law. To safeguard our staff and attendees from the threat of COVID-19, we broadcast this live on YouTube as a ticketed event.
This event proved to be a huge success amongst our Fully Managed landlords, who got the chance to learn from our special guest speakers without ever leaving the comfort of their sofas. The audience were able to submit questions to our Marketing Department via email or the chat function on YouTube, meaning the only loss in the digital switch was the wine and nibbles!
We were joined by two special guest speakers: Daniel Lewis from our new industry partner McKenzie Financial Services Ltd, and our very own Business Development Manager Rob Beal. Their fascinating presentations covered everything from COVID-19 to rental law, taxation to the mortgage market. Our broadcast host for the evening was our Digital Editor, Frankie Gurdon, giving her a chance to cut her teeth before she began presenting our video viewings.
We will be hosting our next landlord’s evening later this year to update you on the rental market as we emerge from the third lockdown, so stay tuned!
