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

  • HPN Event Opens Doors To PDPLA Members
    HPN Event Opens Doors To PDPLA Members

    At our April members meeting, we discussed some of the schemes that we have been approached with and the difficulties in deciding which to share and which not to share.  

    One of the schemes we chose not to share, was one which purported to avoid many of the new taxes which landlords need to pay (avoidance is legal, evasion is not). However, Hampshire Property Network (which coincidentally is run by a couple of our members) chose to invite the speaker to explain the scheme to their members and they have agreed to waive the normal fee and open the event to PDPLA members who wish to attend.

  • PDPLA Objects To Proposals For More Electrical Regulations
    PDPLA Objects To Proposals For More Electrical Regulations

    A working group has recommended that landlords should be required by law to arrange safety checks of the electrical installation in private rented sector residential properties. Whilst  it is imperative that all properties offered should be safe, the PDPLA have objected to this specific proposal on the grounds that it simply creates work for electricians, costs for landlords which will inevitably be passed to their poor tenants yet does little to actually improve electrical safety.

    New Schemes For Landlords At Our April Landlords Meeting

    At our April meeting members were updated on a number of new schemes which had been proposed to the PDPLA and reviewed by the committee, including one from PCC and one from a local church group. We also had 2 guests, Lucy Brown from the Salvation Army who invited us to visit for coffee one morning (pencilled in for June 1st, updates will follow) and also, Claire Ray from Langstone Estates who had several interesting propositions for members.

    The meeting was completed with a presentation from our own Carl entitled, 'Accounting For Landlords' which allowed members to compare what they were doing as regards tax returns, software and book keeping compared to other members.
