The false landlord association member scam

scam.jpg

Being a member of a Landlords Association is often seen as a sign of responsibility for a landlord. Although Landlords Associations do not inspect and regulate their members (for example as the Solicitors Regulation Authority do for solicitors), they do have a code of conduct, and will sometimes expel a landlord if he is found to contravene this.

Some criminal landlords therefore are claiming, for example in advertisments and web postings for properties to be members of Landlords associations, such as the National Landlords Association.  


Moral:

Tenants:if an advertisment for a property claims that the landlord is a landlords association member, it may be as well to check this.  You can check whether a landlord is a member of the National Landlords Association for example >> here.
