Our Landlord Forum took place at the Greek Cypriot Brotherhood Centre on Wednesday 6th April. Once again, the turnout was a success with around 100 seats filled with Landlords & Agencies who we currently work with, but also some that were interested in taking part in our schemes in the future.
Arrivals were with met with food, wine, teas, coffees and soft drinks; and members of the Let2Barnet team mingled with guests and handed out bags of Let2Barnet promotional merchandise; from shopping bags and trolley coins, to umbrellas and handmade chocolates.
The Assistant Director of Barnet Homes Operations, Kate Laffan, kicked off the forum with a warm welcome to all, which lead to a very interesting talk from Sean Hooker of the Redress & Ombudsmen Office. He spoke on Why Redress Matters and explored items relating to complaints and difficulties that Landlords may face during the course of their tenancies, educating guests on what procedures to take when necessary, ensuring they are compliant with current legislation.
Fabio Razack and Jessie Drysdale from Environmental Health at Barnet Council followed the address from Sean Hooker with a talk relating to Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMO). Guests were heavily engaged in the discussion, questions were fired and thanks to Fabio & Jessie, all were answered precisely and professionally.
The forum finished with an introduction from Dave Thomas & Ewa Prince about the Welfare Reform Taskforce. Focusing on the roles within the teams and how they are helping those affected by the Benefit Cap and Universal Credit.
