Colchester Landlord Forum

Our next Landlord Forum will take place from 7-9pm on Wednesday 10 October 2018 at Weston Homes Community Stadium, United Way, Colchester. Registration will be open from 6:30pm. This follows our most successful Landlord Forum to date in March 2018 - more than 70 landlords attended the event where they were treated to presentations on a range of topics of direct relevance to them. Later in the evening, many of the landlords also took advantage of the opportunity to network with council officers, other landlords and housing professionals.

We hope to build on the success of our last event - there will be more presentations of direct relevance to landlords along with further opportunities to meet and chat to staff from Colchester Borough Homes and Colchester Borough Council.

The Landlord Forum is held in partnership with the National Landlords Association and Colchester Borough Council. Colchester Borough Homes, the Council and the NLA share the common goal of sharing knowledge with landlords to improve property rental for all. The Colchester Landlord Forum is free to attend and provides landlords with a wealth of information and advice in comfortable surroundings.

· Joanne Dron, Representative of National Landlords Association - Joanne will update attendees on recent changes to our rules and working practices. If you want to stay ahead of the competition and ensure you are aware of the many changes coming our way, then this talk is a must for you.
