Our Director, William Barron, recently attended the local meeting of the National Landlords Association. One of the speakers at the event was Rosanna Moore-Smith, Housing Manager at Derby University. She gave a very interesting talk on the student market, which is changing fast and private landlords must improve or they will die.
