FREE Event for Colchester Landlords

Colchester landlords are invited to attend a FREE evening event organised by Colchester Borough Homes (CBH) and NRLA, featuring specialist speakers, expert advice and networking opportunities.

The Colchester Landlord Forum, taking place at Colchester Rugby Club on Wednesday, 25th October, will provide valuable information about CBH’s property and tenancy management services to local landlords, letting agents and professionals working in the private housing rental sector, and explore opportunities for them to work collaboratively with CBH and Colchester Borough Council (CBC).

The evening runs between 6pm and 8pm.

The forum aims to help landlords make the most of their portfolios while ensuring they provide legal and safe homes and are aware of the support available for them and their tenants, and is a great opportunity to find out more and talk to CBH’s Accommodation Team about Colchester’s Homestep scheme and Private Sector Housing Leasing scheme.
