The Skainos Centre
Wednesday, November 21, 2018 - 09:30 to 16:00

To learn more about the conference sessions and speakers take a look at our Private Rented Sector 2018, Conference Programme.

The Housing Rights annual one day conference on the private rented sector will this year focus on the potential for government, key stakeholders and tenants to rise to the challenges facing an increasingly relied upon sector.

Chaired by Professor Paddy Gray, the morning portion of the conference will unpack issues around private rented sector access including a focus on housing supply, living conditions and letting fees. The afternoon session will examine how tenancies can be sustained, particularly in the context of welfare reform.
