What are workshops?

Our workshops are small classes (generally between 10-20 attendees) where the trainer is able to give more focused and detailed training on specific issues.

As the classes are small, there is much more scope for discussion and interaction, both within the group and with the trainer. People generally find them very rewarding.


  • AM

    Dealing with the Council

    Topics covered will include - The top 5 mistakes that landlords make, why council homelessness units rarely pick up tenants after a Section 21, how chasing up rent arrears can result in accusations of harassment, and the golden sign-up principle that can save you no end of hassle further down the line.

  • PM

    The signs of crime

    Topics covered will include - How to run your own tenant checks using free web services, how to spot the give away signs of tampering with gas and electricity meters, tell-tale signs that a property might be used as a cannabis factory and what to do about it.

About Ben Reeve Lewis

Ben Reeve Lewis, one of the three directors of Easy Law Training, is currently working as an Enforcement Officer with a London Local Authority, where he has regular contact with both criminal landlords and criminal tenants.

He is the best posssible person to tell you how to spot potential  fraudsters and what to do if you find a cannabis farm in your property.

Ben has been working for Local Authoritys for over 25 years, up until recently as a Tenancy Relations Officer and has also trained council workers up and down the country, so is also very aware of what makes Councils 'tick' and the reasons why they act in the ways that they do.

He will be able to help you get on the right side of YOUR council and deal with any issues that may be causing you difficulties.
