Free event - Making the most of being a landlord

Released: Friday, 17 March 2017

Landlords throughout Adur and Worthing are being invited to a free evening event, specifically designed to help them make the most out of their property portfolio.

Hosted by the National Landlord Association (NLA) and Adur & Worthing Councils, the event will feature expert speakers covering everything that landlords need to know about how recent changes to legislation and taxation affect their business.

Suitable for all local private sector landlords, the event begins at 6pm on Thursday 23rd March 2017 in the Gordon Room, Stoke Abbot Road, Worthing, BN11 1HQ and is expected to run until 8:45pm.

In addition to the expert speakers, all attendees will be offered the chance to join in with a workshop, exploring how to strengthen the local private rented sector. A team from Adur & Worthing Councils will be on hand to explain how the councils can work directly with landlords, guaranteeing rental income at the same time as tackling local housing supply issues.

Councillor Dr Heather Mercer, Executive Member for Customer Services at Worthing Borough Council, said:

“I am very pleased to see the council supporting this event - we have a diverse range of rental properties throughout the Borough, and it's important that we are able to help landlords maximise the benefit of their properties.

“Landlords are also a vital partner in our work to increase the availability of affordable housing - and I would urge all property owners to consider how they could benefit from the free assistance we can offer.”

Adur District Council's Executive Member for Customer Service, Councillor Carson Albury, adds:

“At Adur District Council, we want to be proactive in our approach to supporting landlords in the District. Events such as these are the perfect opportunity for all landlords to get important information and benefit from free expert advice.

“Our local housing challenges have been well publicised, and we must use all available opportunities to support safe, clean and appropriate accommodation at the right tenure, for our growing District. The Council has some fantastic support on offer which I suggest all landlords look into!”

Interested landlords are encouraged to email Steve Hay at Adur & Worthing Councils (steve.hay@adur-worthing.gov.uk) to secure their place for the evening, or to arrive at the Gordon Room, Stoke Abbot Road, Worthing in time for a prompt 6pm start on Thursday 23rd March. Free parking will be available in the Civic Centre car park directly adjacent to the venue.
