Jersey Landlords Association
The Jersey Landlords Association, also known as JLA, is, as the name suggests, a landlord’s association in Jersey.
The association is run by its members to promote, support, and improve the relationships between landlords & tenants.
All Jersey landlord’s association committee members are landlords too. They come from a background of various professions, which brings a wealth of experience to the association.
Due to recent challenges because of COVID-19, the association’s membership has grown rapidly.
The JLA was formed by a local hotelier Mr Peter Weston and a property investor in 1988.
Peter is a family man who has three children with his lovely wife plus a dog. Peter has worked tirelessly for the rights of landlords well as obligations and that tenants have obligations as well as rights too.
