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.
This In Focus report considers the views of landlords on a range of taxation topics.
Landlords' likely response to tax changes sends the Chancellor of the Exchequer a message to think through tax changes and reforms. The impact of changes on the PRS may not be as forecasters predict.
In March 2020, the Government introduced
the ban on residential evictions. This ban was

This report forms one part of the quarterly In Focus series for 2020. This report focuses on the following: (i) The impact of the tenant fees ban on the operating model adopted by landlords. (ii) The views of landlords towards aspects of tenant deposit schemes. (iii) Electrical Installation Condition (EIC) Reports
In a time of uncertainty due to coronavirus, how universities operate has a significant impact upon their towns and cities.

This survey looks at the experiences of landlords who let property to tenants who claim Universal Credit (UC). It shows that the experience of landlords in navigating the UC system remains problematic. The system, and not the client, is often the cause of rent arrears. The impact being that landlords become reluctant to let to tenants who require UC to meet their rent obligations.
