It has come to the attention of Guernsey Landlords (GPRLA) that there are still scammers around posing as absentee landlords trying to get deposits without the tenant even viewing a property.
Who would wish to be a residential Landlord today, and more importantly, in 5 years time?Dear Deputies,
REQUIREMENT BY LAW FOR LANDLORDS TO REGISTER WITH ODPA BETWEEN 1ST JANUARY & 28TH FEBRUARY 2021 AND ANNUALLY THEREAFTER Members of GPRLA Council have requested ODPA to extend the period of registration beyond 28th February in reaction to the new Covid-19 lockdown in Guernsey. We have had in response from ODPA the quoted legislation ‘time frame’ only, plus advised it is in ‘discussions with government’.
Each case is different so talk to your landlord/agent/tenant now to see if there may be a rent payment problem in the coming weeks/months.
