2024–2029 Our five-year strategy

One housing system · Part of the solution · Renting as a choice

Our purpose

The voice of letting

Giving voice to Scotland’s landlords and letting agents.

SAL exists to ensure that landlords and letting agents are able to deliver the best managed and maintained homes, and focus on sustainability, best practice and setting the standard, through being heard and respected.

Our members sign up to be part of a modern and vibrant PRS and we represent them and campaign to demonstrate that the PRS can deliver good homes for people.

We build the reputation of the sector as a key part of the housing system and negotiate with and influence government decisions about standards and enforcement. We provide our members with advice and support to be the best.

To promote knowledge and excellence through continuing education, building confidence and recognising best practice, and to see everyone in scottish letting accredited.

As we promote higher standards in the PRS, we also provide all the tools and knowledge needed by landlords and letting agents
to deliver excellence.

We believe that excellence can be achieved through increasing knowledge, training and ensuring universal accreditation.

We want to ensure that the PRS is a key part of the Scottish Government’s ambition to achieve a well-functioning housing system with high quality and sustainable homes for all, that meets people’s needs.

So good having the support of SAL. Staff are always quick to respond to any questions.

Following the four SAL advice calls I have had today answering my tenancy agreement questions, I just want to say that my SAL membership fee is the best money I’ve ever spent.
