Policy and campaigns

Policy, lobbying and campaigning have been some of the most important aspects of SAL’s work since our inception. Our policy & parliamentary affairs department works at the heart of government in the Scottish Parliament, as well as Westminster, where relevant, with most housing matters devolved to Holyrood.

Having a dedicated letting agent wing via the CLA allows us to do more for all our members. It has been warmly welcomed by Scotland's letting agents and the landlords they act for.
 
One of the major aims of the CLA is to promote and demand recognition for good letting agents and in so doing, to work to counter the negative publicity faced by the industry at times.
 
How does the CLA fit into the Scottish Association of Landlords?
 
Established in 2001 having developed from various local groupings of landlords and letting agents, the Scottish Association of Landlords quickly grew to be the largest and only dedicated national landlords’ organisation representing landlords and agents throughout Scotland. 
 
Through our fourteen local branches, the organisation has strong links with Scottish local authorities and actively campaigns at local and national level on behalf of members. Our acclaimed training programme, delivered through sister organisation Landlord Accreditation Scotland, offers our members the opportunity to meet locally and learn from each others' experience as well as gaining knowledge from some of the country’s most experienced industry trainers. 
 
We're proud of the high profile events we run nationally each year. These include our National Landlord Day and more recently The Agency Business conference developed specifically for letting agents, now in its second year. Scottish Association of Landlords (SAL) conferences are well established as the key events for the private rented sector in Scotland. They provide a positive focus for the industry and an opportunity for all stakeholders to get together and find out more about our work and campaigns.
