An exhibition will take place to provide landlords and lettings agents with advice.

Councils in Northamptonshire, in partnership with a landlord advice service and accountants, are delivering an event for landlords and letting agents across the county to provide advice and support about the private rent sector.
 
Corby Borough Council, East Northamptonshire Council, Borough Council of Wellingborough and Kettering Borough Council will be delivering a residential landlord forum and exhibition at the Holiday Inn, Corby, on Thursday 6 June from 4pm-8pm.
 
The event will provide local landlords and letting agents with the opportunity to speak to representatives from all four councils, East Midlands Property Owners (EMPO) and Shapcotts Chartered Accountants.
 
The exhibition, which is free to attend, will cover a whole-host of topics including upcoming and recent changes to housing legislation, update regarding local authority private renting and landlord tax.
 
Leader of the Borough Council of Wellingborough, Cllr Martin Griffiths, said: “This is another excellent event that will help to inform landlords across the county about changes that will impact them and tackle the lack of quality affordable private rental accommodation for residents in North Northamptonshire. I would urge all landlords to attend and speak to our colleagues that will be able to offer assistance and support.”
 
Giles Inman, Business Development Manager at EMPO, added: “As the regional residential landlord association for the area, we want to ensure all Northamptonshire landlords understand their legal responsibilities in respect to providing decent and safe housing in an ever increasingly regulated sector.”
 
Kimberley Shapcott, Director at Shapcotts Accountants and Property Investor, stated: “The tax regime for Landlords has changed quite significantly over recent years making it very important for Landlords to keep up to date to maximise their rental returns and minimise their tax liabilities. We will be sharing the current update and useful tips to stay on the right side of the tax authorities.”
