Landlords Stronger Together (2020) – Hamilton Fraser’s Property Podcast


    Paul Shamplina, Founder of Landlord Action, CEO of Hamilton Fraser, Eddie Hooker, joined by special guest, Chief Executive of the NRLA, Ben Beadle.

    Hamilton Fraser’s Property Podcast discusses breaking news and key sector topics within the private rented sector with special industry guests. 

    The latest episode of Hamilton Fraser’s Property Podcast is a lockdown special in which Eddie Hooker, CEO of award winning Hamilton Fraser Total Landlord Insurance and Paul Shamplina, Founder of Landlord Action and Brand Ambassador at Hamilton Fraser are joined (virtually) by special guest Ben Beadle, the Chief Executive of the new National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA).

    Eddie, Paul and Ben (pictured) discuss the recent merger between the two landlord associations and how it can bring about “strength of voice and unity of purpose” in the sector.

    Ben shares his unique insight into the sector as a landlord himself, sharing his experiences, knowledge and advice for landlords, especially during these uncertain times as well as outlining his future plans for the association.

    The trio also discuss several challenges facing landlords including their industry perception, legislative changes and the COVID-19 pandemic. Addressing the perception of landlords in the sector Eddie, Paul and Ben discuss how we can best support landlords and tenants by working together and opening good lines of communication.

    Ben also provides insight into the NLA and RLA merger, as well as explaining the NRLA’s vision in detail, what we can expect to see immediately from the association and their plans for the future.

    Eddie concludes the podcast by asking Ben Hamilton Fraser’s closing question for 2020, made even more hypothetical than usual during our current isolation… ‘Who would your dream co-tenant be, and why?’

    1. I understand Landlords need to play their part – I am concerned with the “Government” saying they will remember the way organisations acted – this is concerning as they are in a position of power and borderline bullying. The government have not been the friend of the landlord for a number of years and are unlikely to make life any easier. To date very little support has been provided. They need to recognise this as to date all the lobbying from landlord associations have fallen on death ears.
