Residential Landlords invited to event and exhibition

Thursday 6 June, 4-8pm at Holiday Inn, Corby.

Councils in North Northamptonshire, in partnership with a landlord advice service and accountants, are delivering an event for landlords and letting agents across the county to provide advice and support about the private rent sector.

Corby Borough Council, East Northamptonshire Council, Borough Council of Wellingborough and Kettering Borough Council will be delivering a residential landlord forum and exhibition at the Holiday Inn, Corby, on Thursday 6 June from 4pm-8pm.

The event will provide local landlords and letting agents with the opportunity to speak to representatives from all four councils, East Midlands Property Owners (EMPO) and Shapcotts Chartered Accounts. The exhibition, which is free to attend, will cover a whole-host of topics including  upcoming and recent changes to housing legislation, update regarding local authority private renting and landlord tax.

Mark Rowley, Kettering Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Housing, said:

"We know that sometimes legislation changes can be daunting, but we want to help landlords understand the changes and policies and support them if they have any concerns or needs. The event will also be an excellent opportunity to receive landlord advice and share experiences of letting accommodation.”

Giles Inman, Business Development Manager at EMPO, added:

“As the regional residential landlord association for the area, we want to ensure all Northamptonshire landlords understand their legal responsibilities in respect to providing decent and safe housing in an ever increasingly regulated sector.”

Kimberley Shapcott, Director at Shapcotts Accountants and Property Investor, stated:

“The tax regime for Landlords has changed quite significantly over recent years making it very important for Landlords to keep up to date to maximise their rental returns and minimise their tax liabilities. We will be sharing the current update and useful tips to stay on the right side of the tax authorities.”
