Two new forums for landlords and others serving the private rental sector are being held this month.
The North Yorkshire council initiative aims to give private landlords, letting agents, estate managers and industry suppliers a forum to gather information and updates on changing legislation.
The first takes place on Wednesday November 15 at 2pm at Mercury House in Richmond; the second is on Thursday November 30, at 4pm at Ryedale House in Malton.
In Richmond, they will feature news from the North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, North Yorkshire Police’s Community Safety team, the National Residential Landlords Association, the Department of Work and Pensions and the council’s environmental health team. The session covers the Hambleton and Richmondshire area, although attendees from across the county are welcome.
The Ryedale House event will also cover legislative updates and damp and mould guidance.
North Yorkshire council’s executive member for housing, Simon Myers, says: “These forums build on the good work started by the previous district councils and aim to provide those in the private housing sector with updates on our work and that of partners agencies. They also provide a great networking opportunity with like-minded people and organisations – we encourage everyone to attend.”
