Topics up for discussion include landlord tax changes, energy efficiency regulation, eliminating mould, proposed stringent electrical standards, widening of mandatory house in multiple occupation (HMO) licensing and a ban on letting agency fees to tenants.

Cllr John Donaldson, Cherwell’s lead member for housing, said: “These forums are an opportunity for landlords to continue their professional development, by learning more about updates to legislation and accreditation, while also supporting our aim of raising the standard of private rented accommodation in the district.

“There have been a lot of changes to the rental sector over the last few years. So it’s as important as ever those landlords ensure they keep up to date in order to continue to manage their properties successfully.”

The forum is free to attend and booking is not essential.
