Private landlord forum

The landlords' forum was developed to give private landlords the chance to share ideas, to find out about policies and procedures and good practice in private renting.

Past forum meetings have heard from guest speakers on subjects such as landlord registration, tenancy agreements and dealing with antisocial tenants. Landlords have the opportunity to influence the agenda for the meetings and can let us know what topics they require more information on. The forum meets regularly and all registered private landlords, regardless of how big or small, are invited to join the forum. 

The next East Ayrshire Private Landlord Forum will be held early in 2019, further details will be published nearer the time.
