Landlord and Managing Agent Liaison groups

We are looking for new members to join our Landlord and Managing Agent Liaison Groups. 

We hold regular forums to hear your views and those of your peers to help us develop our service and are asking interested parties to express interest in joining us.

We hold two types of forum, one for landlords and one for letting agents, and are looking for members who are committed to being the voice of their industry and working with us. 

Landlord and Managing agent forums

Candidates will be required to:

  • Attend at least two (out of three) meetings per year;
  • Consult with other landlords or letting agents prior to meetings and feedback after meetings;
  • Be prepared to have their contact details shared with their peers;
  • Highlight wider issues of interest and/or concern to landlords or letting agents;
  • Use the forums to communicate landlords or letting agents’ perspectives in a positive and respectful way.

If you would like to find out more and express an interest in this role, please email by Friday 20 April 2023, stating if you are a landlord or agent.

Money – Where to look for help & advice


There are concerns that as well as the financial impact on households, people’s mental well-being could be affected as they struggle to cope, and this may lead to people avoiding or delaying getting the advice they need.

We would like to encourage you and your tenants to talk about money and be aware of the advice and guidance which is available.

Asklion is a website which contains lots of helpful information and useful advice on the simple steps you or your tenants can take to help manage household finances and debt.


World Autism Day

2 April was World Autism Day. The day aims to put a spotlight on the hurdles that people with autism face every day. The day also celebrates the unique talents of those with autism and encourages us all to think about how we could be more autism friendly.

Autism effects how people communicate and interact with the world. With one in a hundred people being on the Autistic spectrum being autism aware can help us all communicate with each other better.

Nottingham City Council have created a network of Autism Champions to help identify ways we can better meet the needs of local Autistic people. We aim to do this through being a point of contact for people who may be encountering issues and are not sure how to resolve them; we can provide information, signposting and advice.

Perhaps you have a tenant who is on the spectrum, and you’d like to improve your communication skills, or you’d like to find out more about being an Autism Champion for your workplace.

You can email to find out more and access support.
