To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many social landlords in South Lanarkshire have access to the landlord portal; and whether he has plans to extend that service to other social landlords in that area.

There are currently 636 landlords enrolled on the Landlord Portal. We are unable to confirm exactly how many of these operate solely in the South Lanarkshire area as landlords often serve and operate across multiple geographical areas and Local Authorities.

As of December 2018, the landlords we have enrolled on the portal represent around 96% of the total Social Rented Sector housing stock in England, Wales and Scotland. Work continues to identify appropriate Social landlords for portal enrolment.

The list of landlords currently enrolled on the portal has been published and can be accessed via the link below:

If you are aware of any social landlords who are not on the landlord portal but would like to be considered they can email us at TPLP.enrolmentcontacts@dwp.gsi.gov.uk
