Landlords’ Forum – Thursday 25th October at Yeovil Rugby Club, Dorchester Road, Yeovil

South Somerset District Council is hosting its sixth in a series of Landlords’ Forums run in partnership with the National Landlords Association. The first five forums have been very well attended.

It is anticipated that this will be a very popular event because the coalition government is introducing Universal Credit, which could bring changes for landlords and tenants. Ian Potter – Head of Benefits and Revenues will be talking through the changes.
