The DeckLeading lights of the lettings industry enjoyed an excellent networking evening at The Deck in London on 20 August. Over 100 guests, including ARLA President Lucy Morton and ARLA Operations Manager Ian Potter, enjoyed an evening of music and magic at one of the city’s newest and most stunning venues, The Deck at the National Theatre. The evening got under way with a performance by up-and-coming solo artist Cy Stanley followed by a gourmet barbecue and a magic display by Etienne Pradier.

HomeLet MD John Boyle said, “We’re delighted to welcome some of the biggest names in lettings to this event which is a celebration of the vibrancy of the industry and HomeLet’s status as the UK’s market leading specialist lettings insurance provider. We’re also delighted to be acknowledging the important contribution the private rented sector as a whole makes to the UK’s economy.

“Indeed, with the Government proposing cuts in social rental payments, for the first time, plans to build thousands of new social homes could be abandoned, potentially pushing yet more demand on to the private rental sector. So, even though we’re still in the midst of recession I’m in no doubt that the lettings industry will continue to flourish and provide affordable housing throughout the UK for the foreseeable future.”

A painting of London by Susan Isaac created a reminder of the evening by capturing the panoramic views of London in a painting which was a raffle prize in aid of Centrepoint, a charity which supports young homeless people in central London.

The raffle raised £500 and was won by Jan Sinclair from Kenyons Estate Agents in Surrey (pictured with Shabir Osman, head of field sales for Homelet).
