Central Beds — Landlords Invited to Register For Online Forum

Local landlords are invited to a Central Bedfordshire-wide virtual forum, to hear about new legislation and find out how the council can support them.

Especially important in the light of the current pandemic, the Forum is planned for Wednesday, 29 July, and is designed for local landlords, whether they have one property or more.

With COVID-19 advice from the National Residential Landlords Association, the online event will help local landlords make sense of the new renting landscape. It will also give the private sector landlords the opportunity to ask questions, hear from a specialist and make contacts with other landlords.

Held virtually on Microsoft Teams, the event will run from 6pm – 8pm, with registration opening at 5:55pm.

Vic Daws from the National Residential Landlord Association will present and answer questions on some of the changes in legislation affecting landlords across the country, including coronavirus advice; five-year electrical safety checks; extension of ‘Pause for Possessions’ and the Tenant Fees Act. There is also the chance to choose separate break-out sessions (also online) on specific topics.

There will be networking opportunities with the National Residential Landlords Association, the council’s Let’s Rent and other teams and other private landlords.

Cllr Carole Hegley, the Executive Member for Adults, Social Care & Housing Operations, said: “We know that the private sector letting landscape looks hugely different in the light of COVID-19. We want to face that head-on and support our local landlords as they navigate through any changes. The event will be an excellent opportunity to ask questions, share experiences and learn from each other and experts in the residential letting field. We hope as many people as possible sign up.”

Landlords can register to attend. It’s quick and easy to sign up and you’ll be sent the meeting invitation directly as part of the registration process.
