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 last East Ayrshire Private Landlords Forum was held on Wednesday 20 March 2019, for further information on this event please contact the PSHU on the details given below. The next East Ayrshire Private Landlord Forum will be held on Wednesday 25th March 2020 at St Josephs Academy, Grassyards Road, Kilmarnock with further details to be confirmed in due course.
