Real Estate Training Programme

Who should attend

Junior and mid level members of your team


Delivered by our market leading real estate disputes team, the Eversheds Sutherland Real Estate Training Programme is a comprehensive range of training sessions aimed primarily at junior and mid-level property professionals (although senior professionals often also attend and are always welcome!).

We provide focussed training on topical contentious issues affecting real estate clients such as dilapidations, rent review, lease renewals and break clauses, a view to equipping you with all you need to know to deliver a top quality service to your own clients.

Each morning session will provide one hour of CPD and will be held over a light breakfast.

This programme covers those sessions taking place in our Birmingham office; although many of our other UK offices run similar programmes.
