Landlords welcome to annual expo event

An annual event to help landlords understand their rights and responsibilities will take place in Gloucester in October.

The Gloucestershire Landlords Expo 2007, which takes place on Tuesday October 9th, will see a trio of speakers offer information and advice to the county's landlords about their legal rights and responsibilities to tenants.

The Expo is being organised to help the fast-growing residential landlord sector in the county, which saw a sharp increase in the number of private landlords in Gloucestershire - rising to nearly 5,000 - in the ten-year period from 1991-2001.

Information and advice on offer at the October event will include two 30-minute seminars on tenancy deposits and the Housing Act 2004's stance on energy efficiency, heating and insulation.

Another half-hour talk will focus on the new Energy Performance Certificates, which will be introduced in autumn 2008, while an exhibition will also offer advice on topics including housing benefits and fire and gas safety. A free buffet will also be available late afternoon.

The event has been organised by the six councils in Gloucestershire, including Cotswold District Council, and in partnership with the Gloucestershire Landlords' Association. It is open to all private sector residential landlords in the county.

Other stands at the Expo will include Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue, Gloucestershire Smokefree, CORGI and the Severn Wye Energy Agency, as well as private companies such as Netrent Ltd and 1st Fire Solutions Ltd.

The annual event, which was launched in 2006, will be held at the Oxstalls Tennis Centre in Gloucester. There is no need to reserve a place and anyone interested should come along to the event, which runs from 2pm-8pm.
