Forum for Northumberland landlords to be held in Morpeth

Landlords and agents based in Northumberland are invited to an annual forum being organised by Northumberland County Council.

The free event, now in its eighth year, will be held at Morpeth Rugby Club, on Thursday, 11 October from 9.30am.  It aims to update landlords on any new legislation, highlight any industry issues and demonstrate the services on offer to landlords from the council.

Representatives from the Department of Work and Pensions and the National Landlords Association will be addressing the forum on a range of issues.

Topics this year will include landlord fire safety, an update on Universal Credit, GDPR and Tax.

There will also be a number of traders exhibiting at the forum including, Northumbrian Water, Jacksons Law and the National Farmers Union.

Northumberland County Councillor, John Riddle, cabinet member for planning, housing and resilience said: “In previous years this forum has attracted hundreds of landlords and agents from across the county, and we are hoping that this year’s event will be as successful.

“There are a number of services the council can offer to private landlords which are intended to support them in their role as a housing provider whilst also seeking to encourage high standards of tenancy management and housing standards. The forum will not only help to demonstrate what we can do, but also give landlords an opportunity to network and find out about upcoming industry issues.”

Any landlord or agent wishing to attend should register their interest by by emailing privatesectorhousing@northumberland.gov.uk with your name and address, or calling the team on (01670) 622299
