Responding to confirmation in the Queen’s Speech that the Government will bring forward its planned Renters Reform Bill to abolish Section 21 repossessions, Ben Beadle, Chief Executive of the National Residential Landlords Association, said:

“We welcome the Government’s acceptance that reforms to the rented sector need to strengthen the ability of landlords to tackle anti-social tenants and those with repeated rent arrears. We will continue to work to ensure that these and other grounds for possession are fair and workable.

“Whilst we support proposals for an Ombudsman to cut the number of possession cases needing to go the court, this cannot be a substitute for proper court reform as well. At present, it can take almost a year for a private landlord to repossess a property through the courts where they have a legitimate reason to do so. This is simply not good enough.”

I carnt believe how week and limp wristed the NRLA have become. Its no wonder the PRS is being railroaded into all sorts without even a whimper coming from the NRLA. Remind me again why Im paying a subscription to them ? It about time we have a proper body to protect our interests. How about it Mark up for a challenge ?

Reply to the comment left by MSD at 15/05/2022 - 11:14You’re late to the party…we’ve had two bashes at creating ‘proper’ LLs associations and the apathy is the usual (disappointingly) extreme level we expect from our industry.
The reason you’re still paying the NRLA is because you want the advice line and forms and they know it, so they conflate that with a mandate to speak on LLs behalf (howsoever *they* see fit). And the chances are, Ben Beadle is a Government plant…controlled opposition to give the appearance of representation.
The best thing you can do is stop sending them any bloody money.
