Reports commissioned by the NRLA
This section contains one-off research reports which the NRLA have commissioned. A number are written in-house, others a result of externally commsissioning well known experts on the economy or the PRS. The most recent publications appear at the top of the first page and go back in time. The earlier reports have been written by/commissioned by either the former RLA or the former NLA prior to our merger.
Please note that the contents of these reports reflect the views of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views, policies or policy positions of the NRLA either currently or in the past.
This report was produced in association with the Scottish Association of Landlords (SAL). The research focused on the nation's recent Private Rented Sector (PRS) reforms. The new system was given a cautious welcome. However concerns about the changes to a landlord's right to regain possession continue.
This report documents the experience of cities which have been subject to some form of rent control. The paper highlights the inescapable truth that rent controls simply do not work.
Section 21 has provided an important assurance to landlords that they can regain possession of their property in legitimate circumstances.
In response to proposed reform, this is the largest ever non-government survey of the PRS. It establishes what Section 21 means to landlords, agents and those supporting the supply of private rented properties.
Over the past few years, we have monitored the impact of this policy, and we have undertaken this research to further the understanding of how this policy is being implemented in the private rented sector.
Everyone deserves a safe and secure home. Poor quality housing should not exist in a modern society. Our research has identified a postcode lottery of local authority enforcement, with enforcement activities differing right across England and Wales. 67% of Local Authorities did not commence a single prosecution in 2017/18.
