Private landlords and letting agents are being offered free advice and information at a networking event hosted by Cumberland Council. 

Property owners and agents will have the opportunity to meet and discuss the latest changes in housing law and legislation and ask experts questions.

The event will take place on Friday 1 March 2024, from 10.30am to 12.00pm, at Carlisle Civic Centre and is free of charge.

The National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) will be updating landlords and letting agents on legislative updates and changes within the private rented sector in 2024. 

Following the success of a similar event held in September 2023, the event will feature a series of exhibitors who will be on hand to answer any questions. 

Representatives from Cumbria Police will attend the event to discuss organised crime in the private rented sector.

Representatives from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service, the Valuation Office Agency and the UK Visas and Immigration Service will also be in attendance at the event. 

Councillor Bob Kelly, Cumberland Council Executive Member for Policy and Regulatory Services, said: “This event is a fantastic opportunity for private landlords and letting agents to network whilst ensuring they’re up to date with the latest bills, laws, and legislation. 

“We want to help private landlords and letting agents from across Cumberland to be well informed about legislative updates and changes within their sector, and ensure their tenancies are safe and legal. 

“This event is a brilliant opportunity to gain valuable insight and information, provided by the experts, for free. It’s an opportunity not to be missed”.
