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 1,000 landlords participated in this survey. The survey focused on accessibility. The analysis provides a landlord perspective on why there aren't more properties in the PRS for those who require specific adaptations to live independently. Clear market failure is identified. The research indicates how take up of opportunity could be increased through better partnership between landlord and local authority.
The Quarter 3 survey focuses on issues around taxation, mediation and potential policy innovations that could improve the private rented sector.
The study reports on sources of business advice, how landlords pay tax and their current readiness for Making Tax Digital.
The report also provides an overview of the NRLA's recent "Student Landlord" collaboration with the DfE.
The quarter 2 survey looked at landlords' recent experience of licensing. Possible policy innovations are also tested. There is support for regulatory regimes among landlords IF an impact can be demonstrated - this is something which both local authorities and national initiatives (Rent Smart Wales) have failed to do.
This In Focus also reports on a collaboration with Battersea Dogs' Home.
