There are now over 50 Acts of Parliament and more than 70 sets of regulations governing the private-rented sector.
This increasingly heavy regulatory burden means it is more important than ever that landlords understand the legal and regulatory environment in which they manage their lettings.
We seek a fair legal and regulatory environment for landlord and tenant, and actively lobby the government at all levels on behalf of our members. We also help ensure that our members are aware of their statutory rights and responsibilities.
We support over 55,000 Members and Associates, ranging from full-time landlords with large property portfolios to those with houses-of-multiple-occupancy or with single bedroom flats.
Our network of regional representatives and branches provide an important link with local authorities and our members.
