County forum open to landlords

LANDLORDS and agents across the county can discuss key issues in their sector at a forum on Wednesday.

Topics being covered at the event include the current investment climate, tax, tenancy agreements, welfare reform, housing benefit, using a Credit Union to get rent paid on time and the Warm Zone scheme.

Key speakers include Richard Lambert, Chief Executive of the National Landlords Association, and representatives from the legal, tax and emergency services sectors.

A number of trade organisations in areas such as banking, accounting and environment will also be present with information stands.

The Northumberland County Council-organised forum is being held at West Hartford Fire and Rescue Headquarters between 9.30am and 5pm. A complimentary lunch is provided.
