What We Do
We are the UK's largest membership organisation for private residential landlords, supporting and representing over 90,000 members. Our members own and manage around 10% of the PRS, equating to half a million properties.
We provide the expertise, support and resources needed for a rental sector that works for all. We represent our members and actively recognise the contribution landlords make to the rental sector and the wider society, in the provision of safe, legal and secure homes.
Call of the month: Property inspections
We recently helped one of our landlord members who called for advice on how often they should carry out property inspections.
The way landlords approach property inspections can depend upon a variety of factors, including the type of property, the number of occupants and whether there have been any prior issues with the tenancy.
The NRLA has published our proposals for reform of the private rented sector, ahead of the UK Government’s White Paper on rental reform expected in autumn 2021. Our calls include clear and comprehensive grounds for possession and the development of a new landlord/tenant conciliation service, to ensure landlords can regain possession where they have legitimate reasons to do so following the proposed abolition of Section 21.
Recognise the difference between hoarding and 'extreme clutter', get clarity on how to manage your safety responsibilities under these circumstances and how to provide support, understanding and an effective structured, time-limited approach.
Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements (AST)
Introduced in the Housing Act 1988, the assured shorthold tenancy agreement (AST) is the default type of tenancy in England and Wales. This page provides sample ASTs for members to use and guidance on when to use it.
Quarter 3 survey for landlords
Our quarter three survey includes questions on landlord confidence, tax, mediation and much more. There are also a cluster of questions specifically for student landlords.
The results of our quarterly surveys inform our campaigning and we encourage all members to complete the survey.
