I joined LANI because I felt I needed more support and information than I had been getting. In attending the General Meetings I have met many other landlords who face the same issues as myself and I have been able to keep myself up to date with the changes taking place.

They are able to keep us up to date with impending changes and represent the Private Landlord at many levels of Government.
