The country’s largest landlord organisations are to come together to deliver a stronger voice for the private rented sector.The National Landlords Association (NLA) and the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) will unite to form the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) with 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 per cent of the private rented sector. The merger has been endorsed by both boards and will be put to a vote of their respective members in September. The new organisation is planned to launch officially on 1st January 2020.The two Chairs, Alan Ward (RLA) and Adrian Jeakings (NLA), have said in a joint statement:“After more than 20 years of friendly competition the time is right to create a single organisation to represent and campaign for landlords.“With so much of our work done in parallel there are major benefits to be gained for our landlord members.“We will be stronger together when presenting a unified voice to government both nationally and locally about the importance of supporting the majority of landlords who do a good job providing the homes to rent the country needs."What does the tribe think about this merger?

I've been saying they should do this for years!
To have any influence Landlords need to be united. Not split into multiple smaller groups!
It should also help the group to be more financially strong, with less reliance on having to up-sell there members products & services.With 80,000 members and £79.95 your talking turnover of £6,396,000 a year to Inform, Research, Campaign & Lobby
Will have a read of the blurb they just emailed members, very likely to Vote Yes!

I’m in favour of this merger. We (our Company) have been members of the NLA for many years but recently I have been considering letting the membership lapse – primarily because the organisation has not been able to counter the Government attacks on landlords in any meaningful way – but I will retain our membership for the time being to see if there is any improvement in the larger merged organisation.
My main issue with the NLA is that it lacks any teeth to defend landlords from the Government. I would like a fearsome lobbying organisation that stands up to the misguided, ill informed and downright deceitful anti private landlord narrative that has pervaded the mainstream media and society at large over the last few years.
According to most sources there are around two million private residential landlords in the UK and it seems that the new merged NLA/RLA organisation will only have around eighty thousand members.
With such a low membership it is no wonder that these organisations have had neither the influence nor the resources (finance!) to lobby Government successfully on behalf of their members.
The number one aim of the new merged organisation has to be to get membership up to a respectable and influential level.
With one or one and a half million members the lobbying power of the organisation would be exponentially increased, and we might actually start to see some positive results and turn the tide of the anti-private residential landlord agenda and narrative.
I encourage ALL UK landlords to join the new organisation as it is only by wielding our collective financial firepower that we can counter the attacks from both national and local Government on our industry.
