All PDPLA members are also members of the RLA and therefore benefit from the tax protection insurance that they have in place for all members.
However, if you operate as a limited company, you need to check that you are covered.
We received the following statement from the RLA:
"all RLA memberships, both Ordinary and Corporate, are issued in the name of individual members. Associates can be added to the account but again these will be named individuals. You are able to add one corporate entity to the membership to facilitate the protection of deposits where that company is the property owner. However, we do not issue memberships in company names as it is individuals who have access to our services.
Consequently, the tax protection insurance applies to the main member only and cannot be extended to cover the company within the RLA free offer. If you are interested in tax protection for the company you will need to discuss this with our insurance provider Rent Guard. I am sure you will be able to secure a discount on the cost if the cover is arranged in conjunction with your RLA membership."
