Landlord debate to take place at London launch event for new annual rent product

By |Published On: 5th August 2019|

This article is an external press release originally published on the Landlord News website, which has now been migrated to the Just Landlords blog.

Advanced Rent Option (ARO) is a new product being launched to allow landlords and property investors to obtain annual rent upfront in one lump sum.

An exclusive launch event will be held later on this month, with landlords and property investors invited to attend.

The free event will be held at London’s Royal Institution of Great Britain between 6.30pm and 9.30pm on Wednesday 28th August 2019, with a range of exciting industry guest speakers and presentations arranged for the evening.

Attendees will learn more about ARO and hear from those who have already benefitted from having their annual rent paid upfront. There will also be networking opportunities for likeminded landlords and industry professionals, including developers, industry suppliers and agents.

Christopher Watkin will be hosting the even, providing his unique take on the future of the rental market and highlighting the key drivers for change, including PropTech, regulation and Brexit.

Charlie Bryant, Managing Director of Zoopla, and Vanessa Warwick of Property Tribes have also confirmed their attendance.

A panel debate will take place between the Zoopla MD, Simon Shinerock, owner of Choices Estate Agents, renowned property developer and investor John Howard, and certified accountant and tax advisor Karl Carraher.

The debate will focus on the changing landscape of the lettings industry and will be chaired by Christopher Watkin.

Simon Shinerock has commented: “The ARO has already generated a huge amount of interest among inquisitive landlords and investors who are looking for innovative ways to manage and grow their portfolios.

“This event will give them the chance to understand exactly how the ARO works and how it is already benefitting other landlords. There’ll also be a range of presentations around the current state of the market and where it’s headed.

“Marking a significant milestone in the development of the PRS, the event is a must-attend for all open-minded landlords who want increased financial freedom.”

Christopher Watkin added: “Now is the time for letting agents and landlords to be thinking ahead with the aim of futureproofing their success. The ARO is a boundary-pushing concept which fits this mould and acknowledges the changing landscape of the modern lettings market.”

“I look forward to welcoming landlords, agents and property professionals to the launch event and discussing the future of the rapidly growing and increasingly influential PRS.”

Shinerock also said: “A combination of challenging market conditions and record low buy-to-let mortgage rates means now is the perfect time for savvy investors to expand their portfolios.

“However, finding the capital to do so – especially when considering the stamp duty surcharge on additional property purchases – is not always easy.”

“We want to help landlords to take their next step in the property market on their journey towards financial freedom, or alternatively to simply make a dream luxury purchase, pay for a wedding, school fees or anything else they desire.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming landlords and investors of all levels to the Royal Institution of Great Britain on August 28th to present the ARO and discuss the future of the industry we all care so much about.”
