A conference for private landlords in Harrow has been held at the Council’s offices to boost the local authority’s work with the private rented sector.
The conference, on Wednesday 14, was held by the council’s Help2Let team, which matches those in housing need with good quality private rented accommodation.
Around 70 landlords attended the event which provided topical and relevant information and advice including an update on welfare benefit reforms, taxation advice from HMRC, information on grants and funding advice for energy efficiency.
Portfolio holder for housing, Cllr Bob Currie said: “With major pressure on housing services, the private rented sector has become more important than ever. We are working with landlords in Harrow to create more choice for our residents. By supporting and boosting this sector, we can also work to drive up standards in the rental market.”
