A free seminar is being held for landlords and letting agents in Dorchester later.

Landlords and letting agents are invited to attend the next landlord partnership information and networking event today.

The event takes place at West Dorset District Council's South Walks House offices in Dorchester, from 5.30pm to 8pm.

The event will give landlords a chance to talk with housing professionals from the council, network with other landlords and investors, and hear a number of presentations on relevant matters.

Topics for discussion include new legislation affecting landlords and agents and will be delivered by a range of guest speakers.

Cllr Tim Yarker, West Dorset District Council's Executive Portfolio Holder for Housing, said: "We're committed to working with landlords and letting agents to help explain changes in legislation and share useful information and advice.
"These seminars are a great chance for local landlords to come together, learn new information and make contact with members of our housing team in a relaxed and friendly environment."

Cllr Kevin Brookes, Weymouth & Portland Borough Council's Briefholder for Housing, said: "Our landlord seminars provide a great opportunity for us to meet, share views, and learn about emerging policies.

"The events continue to prove popular and we are looking forward to welcoming both familiar and new faces at the next seminar."

The event is open to all members of the landlord partnership. Anyone wishing to attend can join for free at:
