Croydon Council is inviting private landlords to attend a free public event this week that will offer expert buy-to-let tips and advice.
The landlords’ forum event, aimed at owners of privately-rented properties in Croydon, will take place on Friday 25 January at the Jury's Inn in Wellesley Road, CR0, between 9am to 5pm.
The day will include a mixture of advice stalls, one-hour presentations and networking,
A second event will take place next week for landlords investing in the borough through Croydon Lettings, a council initiative set up last year to match private landlords with tenants, including those with disabilities.
Held from 9.15am to 4pm on Tuesday 29 January at Braithwaite Hall in Croydon Town Hall, the Croydon Lettings event will give landlords briefings on the scheme’s benefits, including rent paid to landlords via Direct Debit.
Cllr Alison Butler, Croydon Council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for homes and Gateway services, said: “The council has expanded its tenancy advice services to both renters and landlords because it improves the local housing market for everyone, and these events give property owners the extra tools and confidence to invest in Croydon. I look forward to these events going from strength to strength.”
