If the answer is no, come and learn what commonly goes wrong in the housing sector, so you can avoid making the same mistakes.

In this session, Pennington Choices will share their experience of property compliance and tenant safety, having carried out property compliance health checks in more than 80 housing providers nationally over the past four years. The same strategic and cross cutting common pitfalls appear repeatedly in virtually every housing provider. So what are they; and how can you create a compliance and safety culture for your estates that will ensure you don’t fall foul of them?

This is a must attend session for leaders and board members.

Speaker: Lee Woods, Operations Director, Pennington Choices supported by Auburn Ainsley
