What We Do
We are the UK's largest membership organisation for private residential landlords, supporting and representing over 95,000 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.
Possession grounds to be strengthened as end of Section 21 in sight
Plans to abolish Section 21 repossessions will be brought forward it has been confirmed in the Queen’s Speech.
The Queen’s Speech saw the UK Government recommit to a Renters Reform Bill, including the abolition of Section 21 while also strengthening landlords’ rights with new possession grounds.
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 2022. 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.
