New Landlord Association seeking pledges

New Landlord Association seeking pledges

Update: Please now email your pledges to

For the past 18 months, I have mulled over the idea of setting up a new National Landlords association. I won’t bore readers to death explaining why. We all know how frustrated and sickened the community is with the other main associations failing to aggressively fight our corner and instead assist the councils implementing their rotten Selective licensing schemes. Enough is enough.

We could talk forever, but it is now time for action. I have held off taking this leap in the hope that somebody else would take up the baton. I completely understand the reluctance of anybody to get involved. Mark summed it up. A most time consuming venture.

As things stand now, the show is almost ready for the road.

I have set up the National Landlords Alliance. Before I go any further if the National Landlords Association wish to take issue with the National Landlords alliance, I say bring it on. Do it now.

Moving on Banking facilities are in place. I am prepared to act as CEO without salary initially to get the organisation up and running. The organisation will operate out of offices supplied by me on a rent free basis, until profitability can be achieved.

I have a PR/Secretary lined up who will join us subject to salary discussions. She has experience in the industry as well as a journalism degree and lobbying experience.

Following extensive negotiations over several weeks I have got agreement from the former National Chair of the FSB to also join us. Mr Allan has extensive lobbying experience including vast experience gained from negotiating with the former PM Cameron and Osborne, as well as dealing with the devolved Governments of Scotland ,Wales and NI. This would complete the team initially.

I also have organised a preferred solicitor to assist members. The individual I have in mind is a former local authority prosecutor.

We will not be selling courses or cheap smoke detectors. We will absolutely never assist councils implementing any scheme to the detriment of landlords. As regards document downloads, they are available from other sources.

We will be 100% focused on aggressively fighting the Landlords corner.

The fee to join would be £100 pa.

At this stage all I seek is pledges.

If the figures are right we are good to go. A word of caution however,and I don’t mean to insult regular contributors, but at this stage our biggest enemy is Apathy.

If we can get the pledges ie a min of 1000 members we have a new organisation.

Big Thank to every single contributor. Keep this momentum going. Recruit , get the numbers. Very shortly i will pist details of our website where members can formally sign up. We are on the march . We have a landlord defence solicitor, a tax expert, a conveyencing expert, an expert on commerciall rent distraint, a former FSB national chair to name but a few. We are going all out. Not interested in Courses, cheap insulation , or latest news on getting in to bed with councils who want to prosecute us. We will however provide free advise for councils. In the future Lical authorities who launch spurious prosecutions against Tax paying landlords had better get their "ducks in a row' . We intend to see many more Colchester type outcomes. Elected Councillors , no more cheap shots. We will hold you to account. NO more cheap shots. Anti social behaviour in the main is caused by Benefit tenants. Accept that and stop the baseless landlord attacks. We have not even started. In a civilised democracy no group of hardworking tax payers should face such villification. Shelter We are putting you on notice. Do not underestimate the extent of the upset that you have caused taxpayers with your spurious baseless allegations. The fightback begins here. No room for the Former so called Landlord organisations. The show is over. New Regime.
