Thinking about letting your home? Lacors have produced an advice leaflet to help you understand the responsibilities of becoming a private landlord. It is not intended as a comprehensive summary of the relevant legislation and you may need to seek independent legal advice.
Wealden District Council works in partnership with Eastbourne Borough Council who run regular forum meetings for private landlords. Both Councils work in partnership with the National Landlords Association (NLA).
The evening includes speakers on a wide variety of topics, information sharing and a chance to network over some tasty food, all for free!
