The National Landlord Association (NLA) has made a set of vital 'best practice' documents available for free.

Reviewed for 2018

As a result of the move landlords can now access tenancy agreements, reference letters, and more without taking out NLA membership. Instead, users simply register as a 'landlord associate' - a free process that takes place online.

NLA chief executive Richard Lambert said: "The NLA is committed to raising standards across the private rented sector. While we are primarily a membership organisation, we believe we should support all landlords who share our commitment to managing tenancies properly and professionally.

"That's why we are making our approved tenancy agreements (which cover England, Wales, and Scotland) available to [landlords] for free, along with the other sample forms and letters which a landlord may need during the life cycle of a tenancy."

According to NLA chairman David Salusbury, "letting property is a big responsibility: landlords are dealing with people's homes, a whole raft of housing legislation, and day to day maintenance. It is essential that they know what they are doing before they dive in and that they comply with the law and best practice once they do.

"Offering landlords in the UK access to best practice tenancy agreements and other necessary forms is a great way for a landlord to begin to run their business properly."

Last month the NLA indicated that it intends for all members to pass its accreditation process. This involves completion of an "NLA foundation course", along with ongoing courses. The Association says this will provide members with "a means of objectively demonstrating their knowledge and competence as landlords."

Landlords can register for the NLA's free library service here.
