NRLA quarterly reports
Each quarter the NRLA invites members to share with us their views and opinions on a range of topics, issues and Government policies which affect their ability to be a good landlord.
The results are published and build into a detailed picture of the views and opinions of landlords. These reports form the evidence base from which the NRLA makes the landlord case to both local and national Governments.
Over 1,100 landlords participated in this consultation which focused on the prospect of regulatory change. How proposals will change the PRS in respect of anti-social behavour in England and rent controls in Wales. In England landlords can largely live with Section 21 reform IF new mechanisms give landlords confidence to continue. In Wales, rent controls would almost certainly mean more tenants facing annual rent increases.
