The residential sector continues to be in flux with a new government Minister, policy changes and Brexit seemingly clouding the industry. However, the industry professional continues to adapt and modernise to ensure industry challenges are met. The RICS Residential Property Conference will celebrate the innovation and disruption and will explore good practice of quality housing developments and initiatives. Topics to be covered include the retirement housing, the role of social housing, institution investment in PRS and Risk and opportunities with the housing markets.

Our technical breakout sessions offer you the chance to build your own programme, with specialist updates on landlord and tenant, the future of the property management, housing defects, valuation of non-traditional buildings, and more.
Attend this conference to hear from agents, surveyors, valuers, block and property managers to ensure you are up to speed when it comes to tackling the biggest issues facing the residential property sector.

Highlights of the conference include:

    • Receive an economic update on current market conditions, results from the latest RICS Residential Property Market Survey and understand where we are in the current cycle
    • One of the stand-out highlights will be the CEO Forum - bringing together industry leaders to discuss the biggest issues in housing including; the housing supply shortage, the next generation of house buildings and legislative changes
    • Discover what is the current supply and demand for purpose-built housing for older people across the UK? Case studies of quality developments will examine how the industry can cater for the housing needs of the retired and elderly.
    • Institutional investment in the PRS sector is becoming increasingly part of the mainstream. Learn more about how funding of new homes will look in the future and how this will impact the sector
    • PropTech will be an unavoidable aspect of everyday work life for surveyors. However, it can be difficult to understand what the best and most useful technologies are and how they can impact positively on your business. Explore the latest technologies that will be most beneficial to your role. 
    • An interactive panel debate examining where next for Housing Associations and councils and how they can continue to deliver good quality developments
