Launching the new training programme, Communities Minister Paul Givan MLA said, “I am delighted to be officially launching the “Learning 2 Let” Programme to which the Department for Communities has committed bursary support over the next three years.

“In Northern Ireland there are over 48,500 registered landlords with over 102,000 properties. Private rented accommodation is an important and growing sector in Northern Ireland and whilst much of the accommodation is very good, this programme aims to assist in making the private rented sector a better place to live more generally by providing private landlords and letting agents the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to ensure excellent standards of accommodation and practice and importantly ensure full compliance with their legal obligations.
