Plymouth-based South West Landlords Association (SWLA) has noted strong performance in the past year, according to its latest figures.

The organisation stated that it had experienced a record number of significant local training authority contracts and also saw a 12 per cent increase in the amount of members it accounts for.

Officials noted that its current figure stands at 602, a rise of 73 on the previous year, and they revealed that the organisation has a long list of residential applicants still waiting to be approved.

Alison Seabeck, the Labour MP for Moor View, said: “Being a landlord is neither easy nor straight forward and getting accredited is a really good way to ensure you are meeting all the legal requirements and that the relationship with your tenant is well managed.”

The positive figures come after a report by Paragon Mortgages showed that landlord yield was on the increase with those leasing property in the east of England fairing the best out of all landlords across the UK.
