More buy-to-let landlords are adopting a more professional approach to running their property business, as reflected by the number of people signed up to the Residential Landlords Association (RLA).
Membership to the not-for-profit association for landlords has hit a new record high of 35,000, up from 30,000 two years ago.
To mark the milestone the RLA is offering £35 off memberships until the end of February.
Answering more than 66,000 calls to its helpline and live chat services in the last year, the landlord body also trained more than 4,000 landlords, provided over 350,000 template documents such as tenancy agreements to members and has a top, five-star Trustpilot rating.
The association is also becoming increasingly influential in Westminster, with its work quoted 49 times in Parliament last year.
RLA Chairman Alan Ward commented: “This is a massive achievement for the RLA and a testament to the hard work and commitment of its team.
“In just over three years we have seen our ranks swelled by 15,000 landlords who are turning to us for help when it comes to navigating the increasingly challenging landscape of the PRS.
“We would like to extend a huge thank you to these members - and welcome our new recruits - and assure them we will continue our fight to support and represent them to make renting better.”
