Caridon to host Landlord Seminar with Bill Irvine

29th September 2023

Caridon Property is hosting a series of free landlord and agent seminars. The first event, due to take place on Tuesday 24th October, will focus on preparing landlords and letting agents for the migration of Housing Benefit to Universal Credit, delivered by ex-Government Advisor on Housing Benefit, Bill Irvine, and CEO of Caridon Group, Mario Carrozzo.

Over the next 18 months, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) plans to transfer a further 2.5M claimants, many of whom are currently claiming Housing Benefit, paid direct to their landlord, over to Universal Credit where different rules apply. These changes will be applied across the UK and the forced transfer poses a threat to vulnerable tenants and existing housing benefit arrangements with councils, which protect both tenants and landlords. Removing these safeguards could potentially cause rent arrears.

Mario Carrozzo, Founder and CEO of Caridon Property, a leading private provider of social housing, accommodating benefit reliant tenants, says “We recognise the importance of staying informed in this ever-changing rental landscape and supporting our tenants through the sometimes complex and time-consuming process.

We are preparing staff and tenants for the challenges ahead because we know from experience, that being fully prepared for the transition helps to mitigate many of the problems which could arise. We are hosting this event because we want to share our concerns and plans with others, so that landlords and letting agents who also operate in this niche part of the market can understand and plan for how the changes affect them .”

Guest Speaker, Bill Irvine, ex-Government Advisor and renowned expert in the field, will share his wealth of knowledge and provide expert guidance on Housing Benefit & Universal Credit. Delegates will also have the opportunity take part in a Q&A with Bill, enabling guests to have their specific questions and concerns raised. Having worked with local authorities for more than 15 years, Caridon Property Group CEO and Executive Director, will also share their unique perspectives on the industry and its challenges.

The event will conclude with time for networking with fellow landlords and industry professionals over refreshments.
