landlordThe Department for Communities is reminding landlords who registered with the Landlord Registration Scheme in 2014 that it is time to renew their registration if they are still a landlord. The Landlord Registration Scheme was introduced in February 2014 and the period of registration lasts for three years.
  Therefore landlords who registered with the scheme in 2014 will need to check when their registration expires and if they are continuing to rent out their properties, they need to register with the scheme for a further three years.
