Free city exhibition and seminar for private landlords is likely to focus on changing Government legislation.

Joshua Briggs Partner & Head of Dispute Resolution

The very latest plans to further empower tenants’ and their eviction rights are likely to be a main point of discussion at a free landlords’ forum and exhibition, being held at Lincoln’s International Bomber Command Centre on Thursday, May 23.

Wilkin Chapman solicitors Partner Joshua Briggs and Giles Inman of the East Midlands Property Owners Ltd, (EMPO), will be joined by leading letting agent Belvoir Lincoln, Wright Vigar Accounts and Lincoln City Council to brief attendees on current issues affecting the private letting sector both nationally and regionally.

And, with recent news of Government proposals to put a stop to Section 21 notice evictions, commonly referred to as ‘no-fault’ notices, the ways in which landlords can further protect themselves will be almost certainly be raised, said Joshua Briggs, a commercial litigation expert who specialises in landlord and tenant issues.

“This latest announcement from central Government is the latest in a long line of proposed and accepted changes to legislation, that have had, or are likely to have, implications for all private landlords,” said Joshua.

“And with this comes a need to ensure that those who are managing or owning private rental properties stay ahead of the game, particularly when it comes to ensuring good and water tight tenancy agreements are in place, which will prevent problems further down the line,” he added.

For EMPO, which at 77-years-old is the nation’s oldest non-profit-making private landlords’ organisation, Giles will further outline the plethora of regulations planned.

“The Government has embarked on the introduction of a series of reforms to help rid the sector of bad practice and encourage build-to-rent developments, and every day this seems to bring a new piece of legislation that affects our business,” said Giles.

Starting at 4pm, with refreshments, networking and an exhibitor review, a local housing update by Lincoln City Council and Decent and Safe Housing, (DASH) will follow along with presentations by Joshua Briggs, Wright Vigar and EMPO and Belvoir. It will end at 8pm.
