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.
