Information evening with Belfast City Council HMO Unit

Wednesday 22nd May 2019, 7:30pm

Harlequins Club, Deramore Park, Malone Rd, Belfast BT9 5JX

Are you an HMO Landlord or do you manage HMO properties for others?

Then this meeting is a must for you….

From Monday 1 April 2019, licensing laws for shared flats and houses changed. On this date the Houses in Multiple Occupation Act (Northern Ireland) 2016 went into operation and local councils across NI took over responsibility for houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) from the NI Housing Executive.

Our 2 speakers Kevin Bloomfield and Steven Law are senior staff in Belfast City Council’s new HMO Unit and they will cover various topics including:-

  • How to apply for a renewal of your HMO licence and what information is required to renew.
  • Operational matters in managing an HMO and the penalties for non-compliance.

This is a unique opportunity for LANI Members to meet Kevin and Steven and ask questions on the night.

Please note this is a Members only meeting – if you are bringing guests or work colleagues they will need to be a member to be able to attend. If you have not renewed your membership, you need to do so prior to the meeting.

I joined LANI because I felt I needed more support and information than I had been getting. In attending the General Meetings I have met many other landlords who face the same issues as myself and I have been able to keep myself up to date with the changes taking place.

SP, Lisburn

I joined LANI because it seemed like the most professional body representing landlords in Northern Ireland. I wouldn’t have known about the changes to the landlords rates or saved myself that 15% on all my properties.

LJ, Dungannon

I have found my membership very beneficial. I now belong to an organisation that is dedicated to our profession and which knows the laws and legislation that go along with it. They are able to keep us up to date with impending changes and represent the Private Landlord at many levels of Government.

The advice line is brilliant; whenever I have a problem the office staff takes my enquiry and someone gets back to me with the most up-to-date information.
