Landlords’ forum to be held in Richmond

A series of landlords’ forums begins in Richmond next month.

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

The local autumn forum take place on Wednesday, November 15, at 2pm at Mercury House in Richmond.

It 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.

North Yorkshire Council’s executive member for housing, Cllr Simon Myers, said: “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.”
