24 April 2018Private landlords and letting agents across west Cheshire are invited to attend a Landlord Forum on Thursday 10 May in Ellesmere Port.
The Private Landlord Forum supported by Cheshire West and Chester Council and the National Landlords Association will take place between 3.30 pm and 6.30 pm at the Civic Suite, Civic Hall, Civic Way.
The Landlord Forum promises to be informative, as well as provide an opportunity for landlords to network and visit the exhibitor stands.
Lisa Harris, Director of Places Strategy, Cheshire West and Chester Council said: “As a Council we recognise the importance the private rented sector plays in helping to meet the housing needs of our residents. The Landlord Forum provides us with an ideal opportunity to engage with the sector and help promote its long term sustainability.
“For this Forum, landlords and agents will be able to find out how the new Homeless Reduction Act will work and what this means for landlords and their tenants. There will also be the opportunity to hear first-hand from the National Landlords Association about any new and future planned legislation”.
There will be the usual exhibitor stands with experts on hand to discuss topics such as: landlord accreditation, empty homes, energy efficiency, welfare benefits and anti-social behaviour.
Paul Alexander from the National Landlords Association said: “The NLA is keen to work with Cheshire West and Chester Council to help improve housing standards across west Cheshire. The Landlord Forum is becoming one of the most popular and well attended landlord events across the region and is an ideal way for the NLA to provide face to face support to the sector”.
As part of the event, the guest speaker from NAPIT - the National Association of Professional Inspectors and Testers will explain what landlords need to do to ensure the electrics to their property are safe and compliant with the latest legislation.
There will also be a Fire Safety Awareness workshop before the Landlord Forum which will begin at 1.30pm and finish at 3.30pm, just in time for landlords to attend the Landlord Forum.
