    Housing Fair hailed a success

    Tuesday 02 May 2017

    West Somerset Council hosted the first Landlords and Housing Fair at The Beach Hotel, Minehead, recently.

    Nearly 90 landlords, potential landlords, empty property owners, first time buyers and tenants from West Somerset, Sedgemoor and Taunton Deane found a wealth of information on a range of housing related subjects.

    The Fair was a great success and featured 17 exhibitors providing advice and material on grants and low cost loans available, health and safety requirements, accountancy and mortgage advice, lodging scheme, management and letting agencies. Talks included legal advice, tenancy advice and making the most of an empty property.

    Feedback from people that came along included:
    ‘Having so many agencies with information on different useful aspects is really good and makes decisions and looking at options easier’.
    ‘Very useful overview of the local situation for rental properties’
    ‘There was a very good buzz to the whole event. Very busy and refreshments were appreciated too’!

    If you would like to find out more about the schemes including grants and loans available, please contact Beccy Brown Housing Initiatives Officer – HPC of Taunton Deane Borough Council and West Somerset Council Tel: 01984 635314 Ext 5314 Email: bbrown@westsomerset.gov.uk
