The discrimination legislation consultation period is currently open, and closes on 30th September.
There are relevant documents and information which you can view at www.gov.gg/
Also the Equality group have put together a document which focuses on the area of ‘Accommodation’, what the requirements will be, and related exemptions. Here it is. You’ll need online data switched on to access it.
If after reading their documents and listening to the talk on 5th September you have any feedback please provide it direct on their feedback questionnaire form by the end of September when the consultation period closes, rather than through GPRLA.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
There will be application forms if you wish to join GPRLA, as well as our Guide to Letting booklet.

There will be an open meeting held by Guernsey Private Residential Landlords Association (GPRLA) at Guernsey Yacht Club, Castle Emplacement, St Peter Port on Tuesday 16 October 2018, commencing at 7 pm.
Our guest speaker will be a representative from the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner (ODPC). They will be talking about the new Guernsey Data Protection Law which came into effect in May 2018 to bring Guernsey in line with GDPR (The European General Data Protection Regulation), from a Landlord’s perspective. This will be followed by a question & answer session.
Recently GPRLA Chairman, Jeff Guilbert, has given media interviews on this topic, and there have been various reports in the Guernsey Press and other media. This situation could affect landlords, tenants, and people whose home is managed by Sarnia Estates property management section. Also possibly house purchasers/sellers if they have paid money to Sarnia.
