The next Liverpool Private Rented Sector Forum will be held on Wednesday, September 27th.

The Liverpool Private Rented Sector Forum (PRSF) was set up to improve communication between landlords, property managers and the council, and any landlord or agent operating within the city can attend the meetings.

The agenda includes:

  • Homelessness Reduction Act
  • Electrical Safety in the PRS
  • Emergency Planning and Business Resilience
  • How rental property can still be a good investment if you do it properly and
  • A Q&A session.

Speakers include representatives of the North West Property Owners Association (NWPOA) and Liverpool City Council.

The meeting will be held at 4pm at Liverpool Town Hall. Places are limited so please call Karen Locke or Nicky Edwards on 0151 233 0217 to book your place.

The NWPOA will be holding its own meeting next month, with the RLA’s chief executive, senior researcher and Universal Credit expert all speaking.

CEO Andrew Goodacre will give an update on the work of the RLA, with Tom Simcock explaining the importance of research when it comes to influencing government policy and the PRS going forward.

Bill Irvine, Universal Credit expert and RLA trainer will talk about UC issues affecting PRS landlords and Tony McVey will also speak, to discuss letting rules and requirements, followed by a Q&A session.

Some north west RLA members may be unaware that they have automatic membership of the NWPOA and as a result can attend the meetings and other events after the affiliation of the two organisations two years ago.

The body is keen for members to get in touch to suggest presentations or discussion topics or issues they are facing that can be discussed at subsequent meetings.

The October meeting will be held on Thursday October 26th, from 6.30pm to 8.30 pm at The Casa, 29 Hope Street, Liverpool L1 9BQ. To find out more about the NWPOA click here.
