North East property investors supported by Sweeney Miller
SWEENEY Miller was proud to be involved in the inception of ‘North East Landlords’ – a forum set up to give property investors in the region a platform.
The launch event was held on Thursday, May 17th at the NatWest Offices, One Trinity Gardens, Broad Chare, Newcastle.
Explaining the mission of the new group, a spokesperson said: “We are setting up a landlords’ group with a few other professionals in the area.
“The idea is that we will hold events aimed at investors buying residential and commercial properties and talk about the various trends in these areas.
“So our message to landlords is this – would you like to see a Landlord Association that has all the benefits that a National Association can offer but with a local presence engaging with local Councils on your behalf?
“If so, you are going to be interested in our new Landlord Association which will be run by local people for the benefit of local Landlords.
“The new organisation will look to meet the needs of all Private Landlords from the Border to North
Yorkshire and hold regular meetings throughout the area, both north and south of the Tyne where there
is demand from landlords.
“Our intention is to make the meetings informative and useful with trade stands at each
meeting to provide information for Landlords, refreshments and topics of interest to private sector landlords.
“We also would like to be engaging with all the Local Authorities in the North East to represent the views of the PRS and try to ensure a good working relationship.”
The agenda on the launch night was:
- Explanation of why the organisation is being established, how it will operate and what landlords would like to see it deliver.
- A speaker from the Residential Landlords Association on how they will support the organisation.
- A brief update on the Lending Market along with an update on national and local issues.
