A member of The CPD Certification Service, Deacon provides accredited training workshops for property management company employees who handle or deal with insurance on behalf of their clients.

Over 100 delegates have already benefitted from the workshop titled ‘Block Management Insurance’, which would normally attract a charge of £125 per delegate but is free to Deacon managing agents.

The course is for all levels, from new entries into the property management sector to more experienced staff who want a refresher on Block Insurance. More than 94%* of attendees on the latest course (July 2017) felt the course was excellent, well-structured, comprehensive and helpful.

The full day (5 hours/5 points) and half day (2 to 3 hours/2 points) courses provide delegates with the knowledge they need to answer many of the questions property owners and leaseholders ask about insurance for their block of flats or apartments.

Topics covered in the Deacon CPD accredited leasehold flat insurance training for property managers includes:

  • Regulatory Bodies
  • Placing insurance? The Do’s and Don’t’s
  • Blocks of flats insurance explained
  • Top tips to getting it right
  • Making a claim
  • Additional protection – what are the options?

With buildings insurance typically the biggest single cost on a block of flats service charge, it is perhaps not surprising that leaseholders often quiz property managers about the policies they are recommending.

Each course is designed around the delegates, their property portfolios and the enquiries they are most likely to receive on a daily basis.
