Course booking terms & conditions

Who we are

In these Terms, ‘Group’, ‘We’, ‘Us’ and ‘Our’ mean the National Residential Landlords Association group (the NRLA), a membership organisation which represents and supports private residential landlords in the UK.   It comprises four companies:  

National Residential Landlords Association - a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee (registered in England under number 12187275); 

LPTE Limited - a share company which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the NRLA (registered in England under number 12249799);  

NLA2019 Limited (which traded as NLA - National Landlords Association); and, 

RLA2019 Limited (which traded as RLA - Residential Landlords Association). 

The registered office for these companies is at 212 Washway Road, Manchester, England M33 6RN. 


These terms and conditions apply to anyone making a course booking (the ‘booker’) and/or anyone attending a course (the ‘delegate’). Please read this and the Privacy Notice carefully before booking. Once accepted, your application to attend a course constitutes a binding contract with LPTE Limited (part of the National Residential Landlords Association group ‘NRLA’) and is subject to these terms and conditions. Bookings must be made online and payment in full is required at the time of booking. References to the NRLA include any associated company providing the course on behalf of the NRLA. 

We cannot guarantee that any course will take place at the stated date or time. Courses will only proceed if the minimum quota required to book and attend is reached. If reasonable substitutions cannot be made, we reserve the right to cancel or re-schedule a course at any time and accept no liability if the course cannot take place e.g. if the trainer or facility is unexpectedly not available. The course content and format may be varied from that advertised. 

In the event of a course being cancelled, a refund of the course fee will be made but no compensation will be paid for any additional costs/expenses. We also reserve the right to substitute the trainer without notice. The course content and format may be varied from that advertised. 

Neither the delegate nor anyone else on their behalf may reproduce any course materials or documentation or use any such materials or documentation otherwise than for personal study purposes. Any use or reproduction, other than for these purposes, must only be with the written permission of the copyright holder. The delegate must act in an orderly manner and we reserve the right to exclude any person from the course if it has good reason. 

We do not provide any specialist equipment, translators or signers; if sourced by you, such support may be brought to the course when this has been agreed in advance with us. 

Where a delegate attends a course in order to gain a certificate or to comply with the requirements of any third party (e.g. the local housing authority as licensing authority), the delegate must arrive on time and attend for the entire duration of the course. Otherwise, we reserve the right to treat the delegate as a non-attendee and may notify the third parties involved accordingly. Where an assessment is included on the course attended, delegates will receive a link after the course has taken place and will have 30 days in which to complete it.  

Classroom courses

The delegate must comply with all the requirements of the venue where the course is to be held (including requirements relating to Health and Safety) and must comply with any requests made by the trainer. The delegate must act in an orderly manner and the NRLA reserves the right to exclude any person from the course if it has good reason. 

The booker must confirm any dietary or access requirements at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made. We do not provide any specialist equipment, translators or signers; if sourced by you, such support may be brought to the course when this has been agreed in advance with the NRLA.

eClassroom courses

A recording of the course will be provided to delegates in attendance. On booking the course the delegates agree that any interaction made on the day will be recorded. The recording will be available for 30 days after the course. We reserve the right to retain the recording to be used for training purposes.

eLearning courses

On purchasing an NRLA eLearning course operated on, the NRLA grants you a licence to use the course for your own personal use and not for commercial purposes. The licence will last for 12 months from the time of purchase (unless otherwise stated) and you may only use the course for this period. You will not be able to save or store the course or access it after this time and it cannot be sold or given to anyone in any form. 

Courses cancelled will receive a full refund, provided they have not been accessed online after which no refund will be provided. Substitution of a delegate is permitted free of charge. 


You may cancel or defer a course by contacting our membership team by email or phone, we apply the following cancellation policy: 

  • If you cannot attend a training course for any reason, you can transfer the booking to any other available course (subject to below). 
  • If the request to cancel or transfer is received less than 14 days from the course start date, then we will charge you an administration fee of £50 for classroom courses or £25 for online courses to cover our unrecoverable costs.  
  • Transfer from an eLearning course will be free of charge providing the course has not yet been started. If there is a difference in course price this will be payable.

Non-attendance – if delegates do not attend a course and fail to advise us in advance, no refund or transfer will be given.
