Landlords invited to link up with Council and benefit from new incentives

Private landlords with properties in Cheshire East can now access Cheshire East Council's private sector liaison service, which will give them access to expert advice on all aspects of renting their properties.

The Council will launch its new service at a special event in Sandbach on October 3.

Staff from the Council's private sector liaison service will be on hand to meet property owners and explain the opportunities available for working with the authority to help individuals and families in search of a new home.

The 'private landlord offer' promotes the Council's rent bond scheme, the landlord accreditation scheme and provides guidance on the Council's Cheshire Homechoice website, which can be used to advertise properties.

The Council will offer various incentives to encourage property owners to rent rooms, flats and houses to those in urgent need of housing, including residents seeking larger or smaller accommodation for family reasons.

The support offered will be exclusive to those landlords wishing to sign up to the 'landlord offer.'

Cllr Ainsley Arnold, Cabinet member for housing and planning said: "This is an important event and I do hope as many private landlords will attend as possible.

"As an authority we wish to work with them in a mutually beneficial way in order to establish a good standard of accommodation in the housing market, assist them to meet those standards and provide them with assistance and incentives to help us to minimise any housing issues that face us anywhere in the Borough."

Representatives from the National Landlords Association and the Residential Landlords Association will also be present, along with staff from a number of related Council services including housing benefit, private sector housing and community safety.

The event takes place at the Wesley Centre, Wesley Avenue, Sandbach from 1.30pm to 3pm.
