Buy-to-let landlords looking to invest in Croydon or stay on top of industry best practice are invited to attend a free Croydon Council-run event next week.
From offering support ranging from fire safety tips and briefings on new legislation to networking opportunities and advice about taking on tenants who receive Universal Credit, the event is aimed primarily at landlords looking to invest 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 29th January at Braithwaite Hall in Croydon Town Hall, the Croydon Lettings event will give landlords briefings on the scheme’s benefits.
• Avoiding all letting agent fees and potentially saving up to £4,000
• Free tenancy training for renters who are new to the private sector
• Rent paid to landlords via Direct Debit
• A dedicated council adviser offering wraparound support
The Croydon Lettings event will be the third of its kind since it began last year, and so far the landlords of 28 properties in Croydon have signed up to increase the supply of private rented properties available to local residents, who can access council financial support with their move.
Tenants benefit from financial management support and subsidised moves, while benefits to landlords include a wider pool of vetted tenants, guaranteed rent and no agent fees. For more information on the council’s other lettings schemes, visit the council website.
