The Landlord Law service has, with effect from December 2018, been upgraded and is now on a completely new website. This website!
If you were a member of our old service (and have not already transferred) you need to do this by re-joining here. You should have already received notification from us about this with details of your preferential legacy membership entitlement (let us know if you have not got it and we will re-send.)
Below are some answers to your questions.
If you have any other questions which are not answered here, please ask them via the green help button service you will find below on the right (click the button to open it and then ask your question).
The software that runs our old site is outdated and is no longer functioning properly. The best and most cost effective way for us to deal with this was to set up a new website.
For example, the forum software is much better and we will be able to integrate some of our other products and services (such as the kits and online courses)
Yes, we will be closing this down at the end of May 2020.
It won’t. This Landlord Law site is a completely new build and works in a different way. You need to sign up again and set a new login.
If you were a member on the old site you should be eligible for one of our ‘Legacy Memberships’ – you should already have heard from us about this but contact us if you can’t find the email and we will re-send it.
The login you used for the old Landlord Law site will not work here.
Existing members will, until 1 May 2020 be able to log into the old site here to download any saved documents they may have there. However as the old site is not being maintained you should not use any of the information.
After you have signed up to the new service, you will be given access to the old website until 1 May 2020 to allow you to download any documents stored there.
New Landlord Law members can only join the new service.
No. As an existing member of the old Landlord Law service, you will be entitled to a preferential rate with one of our ‘Legacy memberships’.
We have now notified all members of the old service so if you cannot find your email please notify us. We will be happy to re-send it to you.
Note though that the legacy memberships will not be available after the end of June 2020.
You should have heard from us several months ago.
If you cannot trace having received your ‘Transfer Email’ please contact us using the green help button service below.
Yes. All monthly payment arrangements for the old site have been cancelled so your old membership will now have lapsed.
Check your transfer email for details or contact us and ask us to re-send it to you.
All monthly members of the old site will be given the option to either
This is a one time offer though. If you elect to transfer as a monthly member you will not be able to take advantage of the lower annual rate later.
If you had +plus membership on the old Landlord Law site, you will transfer over as a Business Level member.
If you are one of our longstanding ‘original’ members who have an annual ‘standard’ membership on the old site, you can either continue at that rate and get a ‘Basic Level’ membership, or you can upgrade to Business Level membership at a preferential rate.
You will be given more information in your ‘transfer email’ and provided with links to join as a ‘legacy member’.
Yes. Please refer to your transfer email or if you can’t find it, let us know via the green button help service and we will re-send it.
Once you have transferred and your payment is received we will also arrange to refund a proportionate part of your old Landlord Law membership fee if appropriate.
If possible we will make a partial refund off your last payment via the payment processor. However, if your payment was made a while ago the payment system may not allow this. Or you may have paid by BACS where we cannot do this.
In which case we will refund in one of the following ways:
Note however that we prefer to avoid payment by cheque.
If it is possible for us to do a refund via the system we will just do this and let you know. Otherwise, we will email you and ask you which option you prefer.
For this version of Landlord Law, you sign up via the online system. This will activate your access automatically, allows us to keep better records plus we can provide you with a downloadable pdf VAT receipt – which will be available via your My Account area.
We are asking our transfer members also to sign up to a direct debit arrangement via the GoCardless service. This will eliminate problems we have had in the past with payments failing due to credit card changes. Your preferential transfer rates are conditional upon this.
Should you wish to cancel your membership at any time, it is easy to cancel the GoCardless payment arrangement.
Most of the preferential rates are only available for existing members of our old site.
However, we may consider allowing you a preferential signup rate if you have been a member for at least three consecutive years in the period 2013 – 2018.
If you think you qualify, please get in touch via the green help button service giving us
and we will get back to you and let you know.
I am afraid not.
Can you please cancel your standing order asap.
As discussed above, we require all members to pay via our online system.
Any payments made via standing order will need to be refunded to you. They cannot be used for the new Landlord Law membership.
I am afraid we will no longer invoice members. However, you will be able to download a VAT receipt after payment which should satisfy your accounts department.
First please check your spam folder. If the email is not there, please contact us using our green button help service and we will get back to you.
It may be that you have changed your email address and not told us, in which case your transfer email will have gone to your old email address.
No, this is not possible. Although the document generator system, from the user’s point of view, works in a similar way, it is in fact very different.
So if you want to re-issue a tenancy agreement you will need to create it again on this site. After that however, it will remain available for you to re-use in the same way as the documents on the old site were.
After you have signed up to the new Landlord Law you can have access to the old Landlord Law (provided you remain a member of the new site) up until 2 May 2020 to allow you to download the documents stored there.
Note that after 2 May the old site will no longer be available. So please ensure that you have downloaded all your documents on the old site by then.
We will ask you to complete a ‘transfer form’ which will give us some feedback and where you can tell us how long you will need access to the old website.
Note however that all access to the old site will be terminated after 2 May 2020.
You will be eligible for one of our ‘Teams’ memberships at your old rate.
We will have already contacted you about this. If you have lost the email please contact us via the green button help service.
You can still find the old Landlord Law site here – for example if you are a member of the old site wanting to download documents.
However the website is not being maintained – all members of the old service need to transfer to this service.
The old Landlord Law site may be very slow to load. Sometimes it may not load at all, in which case you will need to try again later.
