Housing officials will meet landlords and West Midlands Police on Thursday 18 October in a bid to improve standards within Birmingham's Private Rented Sector.

The aim of the event at Sutton Rugby Club (6.30-9pm) is to share good working practise, providing advice and information to improve standards in the north of the city.

Speakers include:

  • Mary Latham - West Midlands representative of the National Landlords Association.
  • West Midlands Police Stockland Green Neighbourhood team

Landlords will be given the opportunity to quiz the panel on a range of legal issues, including how the police can help deal with difficult tenants. The event will also look at changing legislation and regulations.

Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, Cllr Steve Bedser, said: “I think it's significant that the event is supported by the National Landlords Association and that we are working closely with West Midlands Police.

“Hopefully this event will prove useful to landlords as we look to improve standards in rented accommodation across the city.”
