Renting a residential property is much easier and safer since the Housing Act 1988 and the implementation of the 1996 amendments.

However, renting a property is often a big commitment and it is therefore important to have some guidelines and general advice on what to do and what not to do to make your tenancy as successful as possible.

Ensure the landlord or agent you rent from is a member of NLA or UKALA and subscribes to our Code of Practice - then you can be confident your rental will be professionally managed.

Is Your Landlord a Member?

All NLA members are issued with a membership ID card.

If your landlord claims to be a member of the National Landlords Association - but cannot present their membership card - you can still verify membership by asking for their name and membership number. If they cannot give this to you, they are NOT a member.

Warning: Read the latest Gumtree scam.
