TFA National Chairman Greg Bliss said "Earlier this year we had a very successful road show on rent reviews just before this year’s negotiations between landlords and tenants got underway. This time around we're focusing again on the rent review issue but taking the lessons learned from the reviews which have already been settled and passing this information and advice on to tenants who are still in negotiation. We have found that a significant number of TFA members are reporting that their landlords have been asking for large, unsustainable rent increases. We have been able to help them in fighting this through the information and support that we can provide”.

The TFA meetings will also cover a number of other topical issues including Nitrate Vulnerable Zones, Bovine TB, set-aside and the Government’s agenda for Cost and Responsibility sharing on animal health and Welfare issues depending on the area of the meeting.

At each meeting there will be an expert from the TFA's panel of Recommended Professionals, along with representatives from the TFA. The meetings, which all start at 7:30pm will take place as follows.

20th October: Talbot Hotel, West Street, Leominster, Herefordshire, HR8 6EP
