If you are a forward thinking letting or estate agent the ARLA conference on the 28th March 2017 is definitely something you do not want to miss! It’s the largest and most attended event in the property sector’s calendar, and brings together property professionals from across a wide spectrum.
The conference will include presentations from leading industry experts and guest speakers. The event is an ideal setting to review the recent regulatory changes within the property market, and will play host to topical seminars essential to keep you up-to-date and equipped to enhance your business.
Unsurprisingly, one hot topic at this year’s event will be the ‘increase in regulation’ in the property sector and how the market has coped with the controversial introduction of the ‘Right to Rent’ legislation.
In a highly competitive market, such as property, you will no doubt be wanting to ensure you are consumer focused and keeping up-to-date with the latest innovative technology that can meet the growing demands and expectations of your customers.
Despite the headache that comes with increased regulation, embracing the latest technology can actually give you a competitive advantage.
Technology that automates and simplifies required due diligence checks and streamlines the customer on-boarding process can give you an edge over your competitors. It can allow you to rapidly onboard new customers and improve the overall customer engagement experience – all the while helping you ensure you are meeting your regulatory obligations.
As the focus on regulation enforcement continues to rise, along with the increase in size of fines imposed, the risk of financial and reputational damage for non-compliance can be considerable and hard to bounce back from. Introducing best practice risk mitigation and due diligence processes and solutions can help you comply with regulation, protect and indeed enhance your brand reputation, and give your customers peace of mind.
Some of the UK’s largest property firms rely on Contego to help them mitigate risk when onboarding their customers. We help them ensure they not only comply with current Money Laundering and Right to Rent regulations, but we importantly help them go beyond this and help them consider and prepare for increasing and new emerging threats.
