LANDLORDS and managing agents operating in south Warwickshire are being encouraged to take part in the next industry forum.
The Landlord Forum, at Stratford Racecourse on Wednesday September 27 from 1pm to 4pm, is being led by the private sector housing teams from both Warwick and Stratford district councils in partnership with the National Landlords Residential Association and the local Landlord Steering Group.
Exhibitions from local specialist companies will cover aspects of property management, and a number of helpful bite-size talks will be held covering a range of topics, including trends in the private rented sector and recent policy and legislation changes.
New for this forum is a tenancy agreement clinic, where landlords can bring questions for a specialist solicitor to answer. Delegates are able to network with other professionals, and a range of experts on subjects like fire safety and recycling will be on hand to answer questions.
The councils’ partnership agency Act on Energy will also be on hand to give advice on current energy efficiency grants and schemes suitable for rented properties.
Housing spokesman Coun Paul Wightman said: “This event is part of our ongoing programme of work to establish an effective partnership between the district councils and local landlords, letting agents and others involved in letting property in the private rented sector.
“It will facilitate and encourage good practice and contribute towards promoting and improving the image and reputation of the private rented sector in South Warwickshire. We are confident that all those taking part will find it beneficial, be it for finding out about the latest sector information, gaining advice and insights, sharing good practices, or for forging new partnerships.”
