The RLA and the PDPLA are separate and distinct organisations. The RLA provides a national voice and a wealth of support from standard contract documentation to help lines, high quality magazine and community forums. The PDPLA provides representation on local issues and face to face meetings with speakers covering the whole range of the private rented sector - from accounting to vermin control, stopping at building works, contracts, damp, evictions, fire safety and every other letter in the alphabet along the way.
The affiliation of both organisations means that membership of either one automatically entitles individuals to access the benefits and services available from both organisations.
PDPLA members can now access the RLA website in the same way as RLA members, download standard documentation, participate in forum discussions and use the national helpline. (Each PDPLA member will receive more details direct from the RLA in the next few days)
Similarly, any RLA member with a postcode starting 'PO" can access the PDPLA website, attend our meetings, receive this newsletter - all they need to do is sign up here.
The hope of both the PDPLA and the RLA is that this new combined benefits approach will give all of our members in the Portsmouth area the benefits of belonging to both organisations for the price of belonging to just one.
