RLA & NLA to merge

Thursday 29 August 2019

The two largest landlord organisations in England and Wales, the National Landlords Association (NLA) and the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) have today launched proposals to unite to create a single organisation.

The new Association, the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) would have a membership of more than 80,000 landlords managing around half a million properties.

The proposed merger has been endorsed by the current boards of both organisations and comes as landlords face one of the most challenging periods for compliance throughout legislative change.

The Association will hold a general meeting in order to seek the approval of members on Tuesday 17 September 2019 and hopes to officially launch on 1st January 2020.

The two Chairs, Alan Ward (RLA) and Adrian Jeakings (NLA), have said in a joint statement:

“After more than 20 years of friendly competition the time is right to create a single organisation to represent and campaign for landlords.

“With so much of our work done in parallel there are major benefits to be gained for our landlord members.

“We will be stronger together when presenting a unified voice to government both nationally and locally about the importance of supporting the majority of landlords who do a good job providing the homes to rent the country needs."
