Yes the GPRLA booklet can help existing and prospective tenants as well as existing and prospective landlords, States bodies, the media and the public in general. You do not have to be a member of GPRLA to get this benefit, but it gives a clear understanding of our association and what we consider to be good letting practice.

It contains information on:

  • Professional Lettings and Management
  • Leases
  • Property Standards
  • Health and Safety Procedures
  • House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) or Lodging House
  • Commencement of a Lease
  • Handover of a Property
  • Collection of Rents
  • Grounds for Possession and Protection from Eviction
  • End of a Lease
  • Taxes and Allowances
  • Useful Contacts
  • Glossary of Terms

You should be a landlord, agent or other person involved in or with an interest in renting out residential property in Guernsey.

You can join from the website.
Click on ‘Become a member’.
Read the information and take a look at the Guide to Letting booklet by clicking on it if you wish, or take a look later.

Scroll down below the information to see details of our membership year and annual subscription fee.
You will also see buttons to either click on ‘Pay Now’ to sign up and gain instant access to the private Members area including the standard lease and offers to members, or click on ‘Register Now’ to pay by standing order or cheque.

Either way the website will request and store your details.

If you only register we will receive an email from the website and will follow a manual procedure to join you, which may take a few days. Our postal address is displayed on the website at the bottom of the page.

If you Pay Now you will be taken through PayPal payment which does give the option if you don’t have a PayPal account to pay using a card by clicking on ‘check out as a visitor’.
Pay Now is our preferred option for you because it is instant and automatic which creates less work for our volunteers, and instant access to the member’s area for you.

  1. Access to experienced landlords who want to encourage good letting practices in Guernsey and are happy to share their experiences and offer advice and support.
    We have produced a plain-speaking standard 1 year rolling lease which is the most common form of lease used for rental residential property in Guernsey.  We have also produced a landlord’s privacy policy.  These are both free for our members to use if they wish, by logging in to the private, members only, part of the website.
  2. We have produced a booklet ‘A Landlords Guide to Residential Lettings and Code of Good Practice’, and can be downloaded from the website, or posted to you on request using our ‘Contact us’ form on the website.  This is also available at places like Citizens Advice.  Due to publishing costs, the most up-to-date version will be the one on the website.
  3. We hold 2 or 3 open meetings a year where landlords can get together and discuss problems or common issues.  We usually invite 1 or 2 guest speakers to talk to us about relevant topics.
  4. We are sometimes asked to participate in feedback to various public consultations and topical issues, by both States bodies and the media.  So the more members we have the greater respect and influence we can have.  This benefits all our members.
  5. We have produced this website which includes a private members area.  There you will see our Constitution and details of Council members, reports and newsletters and useful information, and possible offers from companies that might provide us with services such as buildings insurance and cleaning.
  6. Prospective tenants are offered advice and can message us with their rental requirements.
