A list of private landlords who are members of the National Association of Landlords (NLA) has been put online.

The NLA has created the database to give tenants the opportunity to see if the person who owns their property has a professional pedigree.

Many tenants in the UK are being looked after by "unscrupulous"landlords, the association said.

It added that some landlords say that they are members of professional bodies, even though they are not.

David Salusbury, chairman of the NLA, said tenants looking at the database are provided "with a level of security that a landlord is bound by certain standards of practice".

On the other hand, landlords whose names appear on the list can prove that they are reputable professionals, he added.

Both the Association of Residential Letting Agents and the Communities and Local Government department announced plans to improve the standard and service of the private rented sector earlier this year.
