Buy-to-let landlords in Reading are invited to attend a free Landlord Information Evening being held at Reading’s Civic Offices in Bridge Street tomorrow.
The event, which will take place on Thursday from 6.30pm, will feature a number of optional workshops for landlords to choose from, including an update on the licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) and Pest Control in rented property.
The National Landlords Association will be giving a presentation on recent and upcoming developments in the sector, HGR Accountancy Ltd will 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.
Landlords will be offered the opportunity to speak to a variety of teams from Reading Borough Council and there will be plenty of opportunity for networking.
Cllr 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.”
