Our GPRLA booklet ‘A Landlord’s Guide to Residential Lettings and Code of Good Practice’ is available in printed form and can be downloaded from the website. Although it is called a Landlord’s Guide we hope it is equally helpful to tenants. It gives details of what we consider to be good letting practice, and gives both landlords and tenants an idea of what they should expect and who they might be able to contact for help. It contains information about leases, property standards, health and safety procedures, houses in multiple occupation / lodging houses, commencement of a lease, handover of the property, collection of rents, grounds for possession, protection from eviction, end of a lease, useful contacts and a glossary of terms.
Information for landlords
GPRLA came into being in 2006 as a forum for landlords renting out housing in Guernsey. GPRLA take seriously the importance of private rental accommodation as part of housing provision in Guernsey. We encourage all landlords to provide acceptable standards of accommodation, and likewise we encourage tenants to respect and look after that accommodation as provided.
