Update: Please now email your pledges to Info@landlordsalliance.co.uk

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.

The NATIONAL LANDLORDS ALLIANCE LTD.

With everyone on board we will hopefully move rapidly to collating the membership required with everyone’s help

Larry I'm not if you are aware of this website or not but if you aren't this may be able to assist you in future saving you (and us all) countless hours. Its a free online tool which helps you explain your rights and provide a wide range of flexible email templates for you to adapt to your needs – just slot in the specific details for your case then creates a case file for you. the link is: https://www.resolver.co.uk/
Its in association with Martin Lewis (Money Saving Expert) and already has a property section! I've used the tool for claiming on delayed flights and mis-sold packaged bank accounts and its been brilliant.

I'm really excited about watching this space.

All the best!

If not already suggested. A different name than the National Landlords Alliance due to the acronym NLA!

What about "Landlords Union" / LU or "Landlord & Property Union" / LPU as Labour are looking to put a levy on landlords' property to fund their proposed Tenants Union & no doubt when next in power will bring in the other property wealth taxes as recommended by the IPPR which will hurt all home / property owners not just landlords (which even the Cons are considering!)
