The National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) has reached a partnership agreement with geospatial tech company Kamma, to assist its members with regulatory compliance.
This partnership will offer all the NRLA’s 90,000-plus members access to instant licensing information.
All NRLA members can now take advantage of the NRLA Licensing Support Service, allowing free access to Kamma’s Licensing 365 platform.
This system will give users the opportunity to receive 24/7 data-driven licensing compliance monitoring from Kamma.
This service also means that the NRLA’s advice line team can conduct a postcode search in its new search engine, to inform landlords of whether there are particular licensing requirements in their area.
Orla Shields, chief executive at Kamma, said: “We know from experience that the complexity of local regulations can often be a barrier to compliance.
“By partnering with the NRLA we’re able to provide immediate answers to member questions through the NRLA advice line and continuous monitoring of their properties through the Kamma Licensing 365 platform.
“We know that a significant proportion of non-compliance is due to the difficulty of well-intentioned landlords not knowing what laws apply to their local area.
“Kamma’s partnership with the NRLA can help more landlords comply with local regulations and help make sure council enforcement resources are focused on the real rogue landlords that damage both the reputation of the sector and tenant welfare.”
Ben Beadle, chief executive of the National Residential Landlords Association, added: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Kamma, which will give our members in England and Wales the ability to navigate the all-too complex world of licensing, by providing cutting-edge guidance in a convenient, easy-to-access way as part of their NRLA membership.”
