Cllr Graham Carr-Jones, portfolio holder for Housing and Community Safety said:
“As a landlord myself I know the vital role we play in providing housing across Dorset.
“The past 15 months have been challenging, not least because of COVID and the new legislation introduced for landlords.
“Dorset Council’s housing team is offering this free training to help get you back on track and up to speed, and encourage best practice here in Dorset.
“I would urge everyone interested in learning about how to operate as a responsible landlord or letting agent in Dorset to sign up and book their virtual place.”
“We’re also ambitious to develop our relationship with landlords.
“At the same as registering for this training I recommend that you register to become a member of our Landlords Local Authority Partnership and keep up to date with latest news, further training offers and much more.”
