Private landlords and letting agents invited to landlord forum


Private landlords and letting agents across Cheshire West are invited to attend a landlord forum on Thursday 8th November in Ellesmere Port.

The Private Landlord Forum, supported by Cheshire West and Chester Council and the National Landlords Association, will take place between 3.30pm and 6.30pm at the Civic Suite, Civic Hall, Civic Way.

The event promises to be informative, whilst also providing an opportunity for landlords to network and visit exhibitor stands.

Cllr Angela Claydon, CWAV cabinet member for housing, 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.”

Cllr Claydon added: “For this forum, landlords and agents will be able to find out how they can comply with the latest fire safety legislation.

“There will also be the opportunity to hear first-hand from the National Landlords Association about any new and future planned legislation.”

Experts will be on hand at exhibitor stands to discuss topics such as: landlord accreditation, empty homes, energy efficiency, welfare benefits and anti-social behaviour.

Robert Johnson 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”.

There will also be a safeguarding awareness workshop before the landlord forum, which will begin at 1.30pm and finish at 3.30pm.

Places for the event are limited, to book your free place at the landlord forum please contact Housing Strategy on 0151 356 6410 or email [email protected] before Friday 2nd November.
