Issues including gas and electrical safety, as well as student accommodation, will be discussed at a private landlord event this week.

Various subjects to do with housing in multiple occupation (HMO) will be addressed at the National Landlords Association (NLA) gathering on Friday May 15th at St James' Park, Newcastle.

Those who attend will be able to network with their peers and no doubt discuss anything from tenancy agreement disputes to tenancy deposit schemes, as well as landlord law and other landlord legal issues.

Dr Julie Rugg from the University of York will talk to the delegates about the private-rented sector, while Jim Vine from UK Housing Policy and Practice will debate migrant worker housing.

Richard Price, director of operations at the NLA, said: "HMOs are a notoriously complicated part of the sector but one which is essential for affordable housing."

Local authorities in Reading recently held an open evening with university housing officials and private landlords in the Berkshire region to discuss subjects surrounding student accommodation.
