What are Landlord Associations?

Landlord Associations offer help and advice for residential landlords on everything from tenant troubles to rights and responsibilities you as a landlord may have.

They will also and importantly keep you informed on new landlord regulations so you don't get caught unawares but regulatory changes (which happen frequently). It goes without saying that as a landlord you need to ensure you are compliant with the law so being in an association will help make sure you don't miss anything important.

What are some Landlord Associations Available to join?

There are quite a few landlord associations in the UK, however, many of them are more niche and focus in on specific locations. These four are four of the main national landlord associations. However, I have also included a list of other landlord associations at the bottom of this article.
