About LANI

Find out more about LANI and how to join.

The Association

Formed in 1989 The Landlords Association for Northern Ireland (LANI) is the only organisation specifically representing landlords in the private rented sector in Northern Ireland.

The members of LANI represent the entire spectrum of private rental accommodation. Members range from first time landlords, individuals with one or two rental properties to landlords with large portfolios, letting agents and estate agents who represent many landlords.

The private rented sector has grown in recent years to become by far the biggest rental tenure in Northern Ireland, reflecting its increased importance in the Northern Ireland economy, whilst the performance of landlords in Northern Ireland appears to be the best in the UK.

Within the Association there is a wealth of experience in renting, maintaining and managing private rented accommodation.

What we do:   

  • Provide help, information and advice to members
  • Run events for members with invited guests who are experts in their field
  • Encourage high standards in residential letting
  • Keep members updated and informed about issues that affect them, including changing legislation
  • Engage with government and others to represent the PRS at events and in consultations
  • Encourage member participation with the opportunity to meet and benefit from the collective experience of other landlords

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.

I joined LANI because it seemed like the most professional body representing landlords in Northern Ireland. I wouldn’t have known about the changes to the landlords rates or saved myself that 15% on all my properties.

LJ, Dungannon

I have found my membership very beneficial. I now belong to an organisation that is dedicated to our profession and which knows the laws and legislation that go along with it. They are able to keep us up to date with impending changes and represent the Private Landlord at many levels of Government.

The advice line is brilliant; whenever I have a problem the office staff takes my enquiry and someone gets back to me with the most up-to-date information.

KR, Portadown

I just wanted to reach out and thank you for last nights get together which was highly informative. Without LANI, landlords quite simply are silenced and the work which you and all the team do is very gratefully appreciated by me.
