National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA)

The new Association will have a membership of more than 80,000 landlords making it by far the largest organisation in the private rented sector (PRS). Its members will own and manage half a million properties, about 10% of the PRS.

The NRLA will serve landlords in England Wales and will have a regional structure.

Our extra resources will enable us to increase support for landlords helping them to manage their properties and provide enhanced standards for tenants. We will also be stronger together when presenting a unified voice to government both nationally and locally.

The merger is endorsed by the boards of both current organisations and will be put to a vote of their respective members in September. It is planned that the new Association will be officially launched in early 2020.

Until the NRLA is fully established both the RLA and NLA will continue to operate as now although we will be working to align our policy and campaign work.
