"Working in an area that has a significant number of private landlords, a network that simplifies housing and welfare benefit issues and looks at how landlords can maximise their rental income, particularly during the credit crunch, is invaluable and represents excellent value for money. Using the guidance, tips and best practice provided by LIN effectively, means the membership fee is a drop in the ocean compared to the significant savings made through understanding the complexities and loopholes of the benefits system, from a landlords perspective."

Head of Neighbourhood Management,
