Mission Vision

From its inception, the 'LLA' will run with the simple but powerful concept of driving forward regulatory change in order to ensure lodgers are afforded the same level of protection as other areas of the market, with non-compliance being monitored and actively discouraged. As an active membership body, we are committed to continuous improvement and research to keep our members fully compliant and also give a voice to an underrepresented part of the market. We will achieve this through education and lobbying for our members.

Our Mission is to maximise the usage of spare bedrooms across the nation. This will alleviate the burdens surrounding the low amount of affordable housing stock. “Placing high standards at the forefront of room renting”

Jerome and his team have identified the hidden property sector and are working hard to raise standards and security in this area. They are ahead of the game as there is little protection out there at the moment.

I have seen too many bad situations arise where landlords and their lodgers do not know what they are doing and I welcome the professionalisation that The Lodger Landlord Association is offering.

When things go wrong, where do you turn to for help? Joining The Lodger Landlords Association is the ideal way for landlords to understand their obligations, how to deal with complaints and problems and reassuring their lodgers that they provided a quality service
Sean Hooker
CEO Property Redress Schemes
“I fully support the Lodger Landlords Association. In any aspect of renting, consumer education and awareness is absolutely vital to ensure that people have a positive experience of private renting and that their rights are respected. Landlords taking a lodger into their own home, is a very different proposition to landlords who rent out whole dwellings and both parties have to be content with the living arrangements, both in terms of security and expectations of how the property will be lived in.
Vanessa wrwick
Founder Property Tribes
Representatives of the Lodger Landlord Association approached us and explained their vision for improving standards for both landlords and tenants who are involved in lodger tenancies. I was impressed by their knowledge and passion and look forward to both assisting them in making their vision a reality and seeing their Association grow.

In the work we’ve done so far it hasn’t occurred to us to add in the flat sharing/room renting area, and as Jerome has rightly pointed out it’s huge. I fully support the idea of including it in and like the concept of needing to provide protection for tenants/Lodging as well as landlords.
