Landlord Forum in Ellesmere Port this November

Final forum of 2017 to be held in Ellesmere Port

The Private Landlord Forum, supported by Cheshire West and Chester Council and the National Landlords Association, takes place at the Civic Hall in Ellesmere Port on Thursday 16th November (3.30pm to  6.30pm).

This is the last forum of 2017 providing an opportunity for landlords to network and visit a range of exhibitor stands.  

Cllr Angela Claydon, CWAC 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 an ideal opportunity to engage with the sector and help promote its long term sustainability.

“Landlords and agents will be given a progress update on the work that has been done over the last 18 months. There will also be a popular legal update provided by the National Landlords Association.”

The event will includes guest speakers PC Graeme Morrison and CSO Jane Muckley from Cheshire Police, explaining landlord’s obligations under the Crime and Policing Act 2014 as well as providing practical advice and support on how to deal with difficult tenants. 

Experts will also be available on exhibitor stands to discuss topics such as becoming part of the new Cheshire Landlord Accreditation Scheme.

There will also be the opportunity to talk to about empty homes, welfare benefits and anti-social behaviour.

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.”
