The Church of Scotland has joined the National Landlords Association, the representative body for private-residential landlords in the United Kingdom, becoming its first ecclesiastical member.
The general trustees of the Church of Scotland, currently housing 25 tenants, are responsible for all property-related matters for the Kirk including those properties within the private-rented sector.
Tim Parker, deputy secretary of the general trustees of the Church of Scotland, says: “The Church of Scotland prides itself on providing a high standard of rental accommodation to its tenants. By joining the NLA, this commitment is demonstrated more fully.
“With increased regulation in the Scottish private-rented sector, it has never been more important for all landlords, large or small, to stay completely up-to-date with changes in regulations. We are confident the NLA will help us to do this from the outset.”
