Buy-to-let landlords who let properties in England, Wales and Scotland can now have joint membership of associations north and south of the border under a new partnership.
The National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) and Scottish Association of Landlords (SAL) are teaming up to enable landlords with properties in England, Wales and Scotland to pay a top-up fee to be members of both organisations.
Ben Beadle, chief executive of the NRLA, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with SAL. Whilst the housing framework is very different across the United Kingdom, there is a commonality in landlords facing increasing challenges as they get to grips with mounting regulation, no matter where they operate. We are very much better together to ensure the needs of landlords are properly taken into account.
“The NRLA represents and advises landlords in England and Wales, but it’s clear that with such different legislative landscapes, landlords with properties in Scotland need specialist support.”
The new partnership will allow landlords throughout the United Kingdom to work together to ensure that their voice is heard, according to John Blackwood, chief executive of SAL.
He commented: “Our partnership with the NRLA is great news for every landlord operating across Scotland, England and Wales looking for support in their letting business.
“By being a joint member of SAL and NRLA, landlords can now benefit from accessing a wider range of specialist services at a reduced combined membership fee.”
