Invitation to Free Landlord Information Evening

A FREE Landlord Information Evening is being held at the Civic Offices later this month.

All property landlords are invited to attend the event on Thursday 15th November.

The National Landlords Association will be giving a presentation on recent and upcoming developments in the sector.

A number of optional workshops will be available for landlords to choose from, including an update on the licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) and Pest Control in rented property. HGR Accountancy Ltd will also be on hand to cover tax updates for landlords, and the Rent Guarantee Scheme will offer a Tenancy Toolkit session covering changes in legislation around Notices and Rent Increases in Assured Shorthold Tenancies.

Guests will have the opportunity to speak to a variety of teams from Reading Borough Council and there will be plenty of opportunity for networking.

Councillor John Ennis, Reading’s Lead Member for Housing, who will be attending, said:

“The private rented sector is very important in Reading and the Landlord Information Evening is a great chance for landlords to get together, meet members of the Council’s housing team and to share information with others in the industry.

“There have been some major changes to legislation affecting landlords of HMOs this year and this will be a great opportunity to get an update on the new rules.

“Industry experts will also be on hand to offer information and advice on a wide range of topics, including tax issues, rent levels and pest control.”

The Landlord Information Evening at the Civic Offices, in Bridge Street, Reading, will open at 6pm with presentations starting at 6.30pm.

All landlords are welcome. To book a place, please email: landlord.advice@reading.gov.uk or phone (0118) 937 2233.
