GB Landlords, formerly North East Landlords, has recently unveiled a new look as it expands its reach into the capital ahead of its first landlord event in London.


North East Landlords, now GB Landlords, is a consortium of businesses initially launched to bring together the North East landlords community through regular events, knowledge sharing and events. Since its inception, the association has grown steadily and developed a significant network in the North East, prompting the organisers to rebrand and widen its scope nationally.


The national expansion will offer landlords across the country and in the capital, many of whom with properties in the North East the same level of support enjoyed by local landlords over the past few years.


GB Landlord’s steering group includes Sweeney Miller Law’s Managing Partner, Surbhi Vedhara,  Martin Wardle,  Tax Director and Chartered Tax Advisor at Robson Laidler, Paul Hampton, Principal of Approved Mortgage Solutions, and Janet Fay, MD of Coversure Insurance alongside well known local property professional Bruce Haagensen.
