Other options

Local Authorities

Some local authorities hold regular landlord forums. In addition, local authorities can give advice to landlords on what is required of them in terms of property safety and condition and Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs.) Often these requirements vary from borough to borough so landlords will need to make contact with the local authority which governs the area their properties are located in.

Landlord online forums

There are several landlord forums available online where landlords can find useful information and make contact with others for assistance and advice. One of the most popular is landlord Zone.

Solicitors

It may be necessary for some Landlords to seek advice from a solicitor. if you are looking for advice as a Landlord then it is best to instruct a solicitor with expertise in Landlord and Tenant Law. You can find a solicitor from the Law Society's website and specify that you are looking for a solicitor with experience in this area.
