Is there a regulator for domestic landlords? Should there be?
There is no obligatory register for landlords.
Many in the residential property industry are pushing for landlord registration.
Most landlords are kept updated by their letting agents and those who don’t use agents are members of the NLA (National Landlord Association).
If you are planning on renting a property, we suggest you rent through an agent who is a member of the Property Ombudsman for letting agents, or a landlord who is a member of the NLA.
