Local and regional landlords association list

Good old 2013. If the year of the Immigration Bill, the Tenant’s Charter, the EU Mortgage Directive near-miss, the Superstrike vs. Rodriguez tenancy deposit protection case, the West Bromwich Building Society (and Bank of Ireland) tracker rate hikes and the Newham Regulation Scheme has taught us anything, it’s that landlords have a lot to wrap their heads around.

This is particularly true if you’re self-managing, but even landlords who aren’t have to stay on top of an awful lot. New developments in the world of finance, law and property mean that buy to let is very far from being a ‘hands-off’ investment.

It’s definitely worth your while to join either a national or local landlords association. For the cost of the membership fee you get regular updates, meetings, networking opportunities, advice and guidance and even added perks such as discounted services.

We’ve compiled a list of national and regional landlord associations below:

National landlord associations

The British Property Federation (BPF)

The BPF represents the interests of individuals involved in property ownership and investment.

Guild of Residential Landlords

Beginning in the south west some 30 years ago, the Guild of Residential Landlords now operates nationally – though membership is still considerable in areas such as Bristol, Cardiff, Plymouth and Weston Super Mare.

The Landlord Association

The Landlord Association (web address landlordexpert.co.uk) is an online service, the main selling point of which is that it’s free – apparently the only national landlords association in the UK to be so.

Landlords' Association for Northern Ireland

Landlords in Northern Ireland looking to join a landlords association need look no further than the Landlords’ Association for Northern Ireland, the self-professed largest association in the country for private landlords. Formed in 1989, LANI represents both small- and large-scale landlords.

The National Landlords Association (NLA)

The NLA is one of the most vocal defenders of private landlords’ interests in the UK, and with a network of regional branches and representatives, also provides useful support and links with local government.

Residential Landlords Association (RLA)

Dating back over 25 years, the RLA represents over 17,000 landlords who between them own over 250,000 properties. Like the NLA, the RLA are vocal campaigners and are often seen commenting on high-profile stories that relate to the private rental sector.

Scottish Association of Landlords

The SAL has strong links with Scottish local authorities and regularly works with departments in both the Scottish and UK governments. On behalf of member landlords and letting agents in Scotland, they campaign on both a local and national level.

Regional landlords associations

Whilst regional landlords associations don’t have the exposure or political clout of their national counterparts, they are often able to work on a more intimate level with local government and have a better idea of legal developments as they affect their particular area. Many regional landlords associations allow their members to advertise their properties to local tenants, and offer a good way to network with local landlords, letting agents and other businesses.

Here are 11 of the largest regional landlords associations operating in England:

  • Devon Landlords Association
  • Eastern Landlords Association
  • East Midlands Property Owners Ltd (EMPO)
  • The Gloucestershire Landlords Association
  • North Staffordshire Landlords Association
  • North West Property Owners Association
  • Sheffield & District Landlord Association
  • South West Landlords Association
  • The Westcountry Landlords Association
  • York Residential Landlords Association
  • Yorkshire Coast Residential Landlords Association
