Landlord Registration Scheme

This advice applies to Northern Ireland

From 25 February 2014 all private landlords in Northern Ireland must register with the Landlord Registration Scheme. The scheme will collect and maintain up-to-date and accurate information on landlords and their properties. If you are a landlord and your property is managed by an agent, you are still responsible for registering with the scheme.

The register will allow tenants, neighbours and local councils to identity if a landlord is registered.

  • new landlords must register immediately prior to the letting of a new tenancy
  • existing landlords must register within 12 months from 25 February 2014
  • registration will last for 3 years.
