What is a Landlords Association?
A landlords association is an organisation & community for residential landlords and property lettings agents. Their role is to provide support and representation to their members on all aspects of residential property, including the lobbying of government.
They also provide resources documents and advice. They can help with things from tenant-related problems, to any rights an responsibilities as a landlord, and also keep members up to date on any new or incoming relevant regulations and legislation changes.

Should I join an Association?
There’s no legal requirement. But in recent years the government has brought in many changes in legislation that directly affect residential landlords and so we recommend joining a landlord association.
The associations support all individual landlords and portfolio landlords alike. If you want to keep ahead of legal issues, have access to the latest landlord news and get input from experienced and professional landlords, then it is worth the small membership fee.
If one day you find yourself in a landlord dilemma (e.g. tenant has fallen into arrears), you may find yourself alone, confused, and unsure of how to resolve the problem. Becoming a member of an association will give you that support and guidance you need to navigate an issue.
If you join one but don’t feel the benefit, you can revoke your membership at any time.
