Make Local Housing Allowance (LHA) Work FOR you!


Many of you will remember Paul Shamplina last year, the man on a mission, to make sure professional landlords retain as much of their hard earned earnings as possible. Following his talk at the Berkshire Property Meet he ran a series of workshops to ensure landlords fully understand the LHA system. 

The demand and feedback has been very positive. In order to accommodate the needs of the smart educated landlord, Paul is running the workshops again this May. These will fill up quickly as word spreads fast…
