All the latest news and commentary from the Landlords Association for Northern Ireland.

As the Christmas break approaches, the University is encouraging all students to celebrate safely and responsibly and ensure that they secure their properties when away from their term time address.

The PSNI are reporting a significant increase in break-ins and burglaries in the area of South Belfast during this period, which was also an issue for many students returning from their break last January.

As a landlord/agent in the local area, we wish to share this information in the hope you will disseminate it with your tenants/guarantor’s and promote the safety advice we are sending to students which is to ‘Lock up your property, take all valuables home over the period, tell your landlords it’s secure and do not give your keys to friends or family.’

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.

SP, Lisburn

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.

JMcS, Newcastle

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.
