Private landlords across West Cheshire invited to landlord forum

27 April 2017

Private landlords and letting agents across West Cheshire are invited to attend a Landlord Forum on Thursday 11 May in Ellesmere Port.

The Private Landlord Forum supported by Cheshire West and Chester Council and the National Landlords Association will take place at the Civic Hall in Civic Way from 3.30pm - 7pm.

This is the first Landlord Forum of 2017 and promises to be informative, as well provide an opportunity for landlords to network and visit the exhibitor stands.   

Alison Knight, Director of Places Strategy, 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 there will be a “Question Time” session based on the popular TV show which will see a guest panel of housing experts answer landlord’s questions.

“There will also be a presentation from the Council`s Regulatory Services team which will describe how they will improve housing conditions and housing management standards across the borough and how the sector can work with them to drive the bad landlords out of business.”  

There will also be the usual exhibitor stands with experts on hand to discuss topics such as landlord accreditation, empty homes, energy efficiency, welfare benefits, electrical safety and more.

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 guest speaker Richard Lambert, CEO of the NLA, will take stock of the sweeping changes that have hit the private rented sector over the past two years and gives his thoughts on where they might lead in the future.
