Landlords of properties north and south of the border can now enjoy the benefits of a joint membership of associations in Scotland, England and Wales for a small top-up fee.
The Scottish Association of Landlords (SAL) and National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) have joined forces to offer their members across the UK a wide range of specialist services at a reduced combined membership fee.
The NRLA who represents over 84,000 landlords in England and Wales, was formed in April 2020 when the National Landlords Association (NLA) and the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) merged together.
Commenting on the SAL and NRLA partnership, John Blackwood, Chief Executive of SAL, said: “In these difficult times, now more than ever before, landlords throughout the United Kingdom need to work together to ensure that our voice is heard.
“Our partnership with the NRLA is great news for every landlord operating across Scotland, England and Wales looking for support in their letting business.”
Ben Beadle, Chief Executive of the NRLA, added: “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.”
