About HSPN

Hemel & St Albans Property Network

The longest running property network in Hemel Hempstead.

HLPN was born

In 2011 the Hemel Landlord Property Network was born, because I felt there was a gap in the market where landlords and pre-landlords could gain the information they needed to be really great landlords.
Unlike many property network events HLPN was a No Sell environment, where people could meet like minded individuals and talk about property without the pressure of buying a book or signing up for a course, based on peer-to-peer knowledge and experience with the addition of expert industry knowledge HLPN is now is its very successful 8th year.


Now felt like a good time to expand the network format to other areas...
So on 10th September 2019 I merge HLPN and launched a network group in St Albans creating Hemel & St Albans Property Network HSPN.
