Landlords urged to have their say

Landlords urged to have their say Private landlords in West Oxfordshire are being invited to have their say as part of a new forum being set up by the District Council.

The aim of the event is for the council to provide support and advice and officers are looking for as much feedback as possible to address key issues.

Items on the agenda will include changes in legislation and advice on topics such as Universal Credit. Presentations will also be made by organisations such as the Landlord’s Association and the Citizens Advice Bureau.

Cllr Jeff Haine, Cabinet Member for Strategic Housing, said: “We want to ensure that private landlords are aware of their responsibilities and changes in the law that may affect them.
“But it is a two-way dialogue and we want to hear as much as possible from landlords about their concerns to address as many issues as we can.

“The overall aim is to work together to provide the best quality housing for local residents.”

The Private Sector Landlord Forum will take place on 16 May at the Council's offices in Woodgreen, Witney from 5pm to 6.30pm.

Any landlord interested in attending and who would like to contribute to items on the agenda should contact Chauncy Seed, Housing Property Manager at chauncy.seed@publicagroup.uk
