Information for Landlords

Advice for new landlords

You can find out about your responsibilities as a landlord on

Houses in multiple occupation

If you are the landlord of a house in multiple occupation (HMO), you must meet certain standards and you may need a licence.

The Partnership Accreditation for Landlords

The PAL scheme recognises landlords and agents that meet their legal obligations and those that go above and beyond to provide quality homes. Free and voluntary to join, PAL offers landlords and letting agents many benefits including public recognition, advice and training, free promotion and local discounts.  By joining the partnership, you can achieve accredited status meaning that you are recognised as providing quality accommodation and tenants are more likely to want to rent properties from landlords who are recommended by the scheme.

The landlords forum

We work with the National Landlords Association to host a forum that meets three times a year to raise and discuss issues that affect both private landlords and the council. Topics discussed include, health and safety, electrical and fire safety, financial advice and tax information. It is also a good chance to meet other landlords.

Contact us if you would like further information, an invitation or to be added to our mailing list.
