Councils in North Northamptonshire deliver exhibition for landlords and letting agents

Councils in 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 Accountants.

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.

Leader of East Northamptonshire Council, Cllr Steven North, said: “This event will provide local landlords and letting agents with an opportunity to speak to our colleagues and industry experts about the private rent sector.

“Our team will be on-hand to offer advice and support for residents, I would encourage all landlords to come along and find out more about these changes that will affect them.”

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.”
