Last week the RLA and the NLA announced that the 2 organisations are to unite to create a single organisation. As a local organisation looking to both organisations in the past for national representation - the new organisation, to be called the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) looks compelling. Combined they will have a single voice when representing us and they will have 80,000 members who own and manage half a million properties.
The RLA"s training, support and education capabilities combined with those of the NLA plus the NLA staff around the country mean that, on paper, this merger should be good for us all.
The details have yet to be ironed out and the merger needs to be agreed by the members of both organisations. It will obviously be sometime before the relationship of the former affiliates of the RLA including the PDPLA will be agreed, so from a member perspective please do not worry, please continue to benefit from membership of both the PDPLA and the RLA until further notice.
