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 of meetings and let us know what topics they require more information on. The forum meets regularly and all private registered landlords, regardless of how big or small, are invited to join the Forum. 

The last forum was held on Wednesday 22 March 2017 and was very well attended. The speakers on the evening were the new Housing and Property Chamber, First Teir Tribunal and Jim Callaghan, Antisocial Behaviour Officer.

If you wish copies of the presentations then please contact the Private Sector Housing Unit. The date, time and venue for the next East Ayrshire Landlord Forum has still to be confirmed.
