Welcome to the Portsmouth & District Private Landlords’ Association

The PDPLA is an association of local landlords which aims to represent, educate and inform its members. We meet monthly to learn and share information important to local landlords and we represent our members needs and the concerns to local and national government. There are approximately 4,000 private landlords in Portsmouth and this doubles when you add in the surrounding area – this is a large group of people, yet historically we are an easy target for the press, for regulation and for taxation. We cannot promise to change that, but together, we can try.

Martin Silman,
Chairman, PDPLA

    Tenant Info/Guidance on Domestic Waste/Rubbish in Portsmouth

    Following on from our article highlighting the fact that a landlord or a tenant could be fined up to £5,000 for leaving bin bags in the street on the wrong day or rubbish in a forecourt, it is imperative that you instruct ALL of your tenants on their obligations and be able to prove you have done so, in order to avoid the prospect of being fined for their misdemeanours. We have drafted a document which we recommend that you get all new tenants to read and to sign to show they have read it.
