Landlords and agents based in Northumberland are invited to attend a free event aimed at providing updates on new housing legislation and industry issues.
The event is being organised by Northumberland County Council and will be held at the Civic Centre, Renwick Road, Blyth, NE24 2BA on 2nd of July between 5:15pm – 7:00pm.
Jackson's Law will be talking about the Tenant Fees Ban, the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 and the Government's plans to end the use of Section 21 notices. Tait Walker will be talking about Capital Gains Tax and The National Landlords Association will also be in attendance.
The forum is a partnership between Northumberland County Council, private landlords and letting agents working in the private rented sector to share information and ideas and promote the views of private landlords in contributing to the improvement of the county’s housing.
Northumberland County Councillor, John Riddle, cabinet member for planning, housing and resilience said:
“There are a number of services the council can offer to private landlords, which they may not be aware of, such as a free tenant vetting service. This 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 calling 01670 622299 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place
