Peter Littlewood – Director of
Southern Landlord Association
A founder member of the SLA as well as a trainer for LLAS, Peter has been involved in the rental market since the early 80’s – so has a wealth of knowledge. Peter is anxious to rid the industry of its negative views, especially that it is full of ‘
rogue landlords’. In his view there are three types of landlords:-
- those who know what they are doing;
- those who don’t, but try hard – they to be trained through LLAS;
- and those who won’t do as they are supposed to do, even if they know. They are not ‘rogues’ but criminals, and should be prosecuted. The industry does not want them.
