Chief Executive of Colchester Borough Homes Gareth Mitchell said: “We value our relationships with Colchester landlords enormously because they are a crucial part of our approach to helping people find accommodation locally.

Events like the Landlords’ Forum help to strengthen those relationships, but are also an opportunity for local landlords to stay up to date with legislation and be clear about their responsibilities to provide quality housing and to support their tenants.

“If you are a landlord with property in the Colchester area, the event of 27 March is not to be missed!”
