Meeting Agenda

Introductions

Robert James, Acting Director, Neighbourhoods, Birmingham City Council and Deborah Moseley, Acting Senior Service Manager, Housing Options & Private Rental Sector

Meet our NLA Chief Executive Officer, Richard Lambert

It is safe to say these are rapidly changing and increasingly challenging times for Private Landlords and especially so in Birmingham. In addition to the recent announcement that the Government intends to abolish the Section 21 Possession process, landlords are also coming to terms with major changes to their business as a result of the Tenant Fees Act 2019 and the ever progressing Section 24 taxation impact. So, who better to try and put all this in perspective than Richard Lambert NLA CEO. He will talk about ongoing discussions with central government plus his take on the future for Private Landlords. At the end of his presentation, Richard will be pleased to take questions.
