Landlords who let properties in England, Wales, and Scotland are now able to acquire joint membership of associations north or south of the border.
The National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) and Scottish Association of Landlords (SAL) are coming together as a partnership to give landlords with properties in England, Wales, and Scotland the opportunity to pay a small top-up fee to be members of both organisations.
Commenting on the development, Ben Beadle, chief executive of the NRLA, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with SAL.
“Whilst the housing framework is very different across the United Kingdom, there is a commonality in landlords facing increasing challenges as they get to grips with mounting regulation, no matter where they operate.”
He added: “We are very much better together to ensure the needs of landlords are properly taken into account.
“The NRLA represents and advises landlords in England and Wales, but it’s clear that with such different legislative landscapes, landlords with properties in Scotland need specialist support.”
John Blackwood, chief executive of SAL, said: “In these difficult times, now more than ever before, landlords throughout the United Kingdom need to work together to ensure that our voice is heard.
“Our partnership with the NRLA is great news for every landlord operating across Scotland, England, and Wales looking for support in their letting business.
“By being a joint member of SAL and NRLA, landlords can now benefit from accessing a wider range of specialist services at a reduced combined membership fee.”
