Following meetings held today, members of the National Landlords Association (NLA) and the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) have voted for the two organisations to unite to form the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA).

The new organisation will have a membership of more than 80,000 landlords making it by far the largest organisation in the sector. Its members will own and manage half a million properties, about 10% of the private rented sector. It will officially launch on 1st January 2020.

The two Chairs, Alan Ward (RLA) and Adrian Jeakings (NLA), have said in a joint statement:

“We are delighted that landlords have backed plans for a new, stronger body to represent them and their interests.

“The new organisation will have a more powerful voice to support landlords, provide services to them and to lobby government.

“Both organisations will now move forward together to appoint a new Chair and Directors for the NRLA. We will be seeking candidates internally and externally and we would welcome expressions of interest from members for these posts.”

So now the two organisations are together they can be twice as useless.
You must remember that they have found it lucrative to run training courses so as far as they are concerned all this guff about "professionalising" the sector means more money in their pocket. It's quite disgusting. They should be arguing for a rollback of the legislation and a simplification of rules and regulations, not encouraging more of them. The best thing is to abandon membership of them (or the single body they will soon be) and join the Landlords Alliance. I have.

All the more reason to back the Landlords Alliance. I suspect you will be proven correct, in which case LLs will need a proper voice.
