Virtual Zoom meeting

Key updates from the meeting

Rent with Confidence scheme supported by the City of Wolverhampton Council & in partnership with the National Residential Landlord Association (NRLA) held the Wolverhampton Private Landlord forum meeting.

It was a virtual Zoom meeting, attended by over 35 Landlords. These meeting are held on a quarterly basis, chaired jointly with local landlord. These provide an effective arena to exchange news, views and experiences with other landlords and also are a good way of updating landlords and agents on current changes in legislation and council-led initiatives.

The forum aims to aid, inform and guide private landlords in Wolverhampton, as well as giving them a platform to discuss issues that affect them directly.

We will not produce meeting notes but will make available summary notes & copies of presentations/other handouts and/or add them to our RWC website, where we have permission to do so.

Information and presentations shared at the meeting:

  • An overview of the PRS white paper, “A Fairer Private Rented Sector”.
  • Update on the Rent with Confidence (RWC) scheme
  • Sector legislation update

  • Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector Requirements
