Landlords that are a member of the British Landlords Association have access to free essential courses. Some courses are chargeable; however, the crucial courses are offered to members free of charge.
The association firmly believe in equipping their members with reliable procedure and practices well as ensuring the members are up to speed with recent legislation as part of their membership.
The British Landlords Association (BLA) is one of the fastest-growing landlord’s association in the UK. It is hardly surprising given the membership is free, essential courses are free and so are 299 documents. Some courses are chargeable, which contributes to the association for its operating costs.
Other organisations are subscription-based landlord organisations and all charge for courses.
The BLA offers landlord development foundation courses for UK landlords in which covers topics like:
- Court procedure
- Deposit protection
- Housing Health & Safety Rating System,
- Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO)
- Repairing obligations
- Tenancy agreement
- Rent reviews
- Use of agents
The British Landlords Association courses are designed to highlight best practices & procedures and awareness of recent legislative changes.
Mr Sajjad Ahmad, the CEO of the British Landlords Association, said: “We are committed to equipping our members with better practices, procedures and the pitfalls of the letting industry.”
“The BLA was created to encourage all landlords to join. Hence the BLA is a free landlords association. Equally, we want to ensure our members achieve an acceptable standard of professionalism to that end the essential courses one would expect to pay for are free to our members too.”
