Landlord Steering Group and Landlord Forums

The Landlord Steering Group (LSG)

This is chaired by an experienced private landlord. Members include Warwick and Stratford District Council representatives, local landlords, letting agents, the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) and Warwick University accommodation providers. 

Our main aim is to establish an effective partnership between Warwick and Stratford District Councils and those involved in letting property locally in the Private Rented Sector (PRS).

We respond to local and national consultation documents, liaise with district council departments and share information and experience with the wider PRS community. This includes areas such as legislation, codes of practice and legal guidance on housing related issues, property safety standards and management practices. Training, promoting and improving the image of the PRS is achieved through newsletters and Landlord Forums.

Local PRS stakeholders can comment and raise issues for the LSG to consider, by completing a feedback form after attending a Landlord Forum.

Landlord Forums

Landlord Forums are organised by Warwick and Stratford District Councils and the LSG, in association with the NRLA. These are free local events for private landlords, letting agents and others involved in letting property in the PRS. It is essential training for those seeking to keep their practical knowledge up-to-date.

Presentations include a number of helpful bite-size talks covering a range of topics and recent policy and legislation changes. Delegates are able to network with other professionals, and a range of experts will be on hand to answer questions. Exhibitions from local specialist companies will cover aspects of property management and support organisations to help smooth the tenancy pathway.
