Two chances to forge closer links between landlords and council

Two new forums to forge closer bonds between council and landlords in North Yorkshire are to take place in the coming weeks.

Advice and legislation updates will be given at the landlord forums in Selby on Monday February 29 and in Harrogate on Tuesday March 12.

The initiative aims to give private landlords, letting and managing agents, estate landlords and people involved with private sector housing a forum to gather information and updates on changing legislation.


The Selby forum - at 3.45pm at Selby Civic Centre – will include representatives from North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, The Energy Doctor and the National Residential Landlords Association. 

The Harrogate forum - at 4pm at Harrogate Civic Centre – will include presentations from North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, North Yorkshire Council and the National Residential Landlords Association. There will also be advice on tax planning, wealth management and general information.

A council spokesperson says: “These forums are a great way for us to support landlords across North Yorkshire. They provide news on important information and any changes to legislation as well as updates from us and partner agencies. I encourage everyone to attend and take advantage of this great networking opportunity.”

    I appreciate my local council has a very difficult job, however whenever I meet them at local events they just want to persuade me to house problem tenants. As I am always up to date with all relevant legislation and guidance they don't have anything new to tell me. Its more the case that I have problems with them eg waiting over a year for them to address a bramble patch on their land which is impinging on one of my properties.

    Wow! They wish to bring all the landlords, letting agents and any others who are involved in private letting to understand legislation, as if they are doing a favour. This would encourage LLs to leave the PRS immediately, leave properties empty. Then they will target those properties with double council tax. Really cornering the LLs, just for personal gain and to look pompous. It is not a smart move. Maybe some LLs would find it difficult to get out of the PRS. Just let out portion of the portfolio, so pay license on the ones that are let and have others empty. Everyone is watching this, how it all pans out, whether other councils should follow suit or find there are less properties available to rent and not take that route. Smartasses!!!
