NLA and RLA to merge

09/10/19

Following meetings held in mid-September, members of the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) and the National Landlords Association (NLA) have voted for the two organisations to unite to form the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA).  By backing plans for its two largest representative bodies to merge, the association members will be providing a stronger voice for the private rented sector.

The new organisation will have 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. It will officially launch on 1st January 2020 and will serve landlords in England Wales, with a regional structure.

The two Chairs, Alan Ward (RLA) and Adrian Jeakings (NLA), have said in a joint statement: “We are delighted that landlords have backed plans for a new, stronger body to represent them and their interests.  The new organisation will have a more powerful voice to support landlords, provide services to them and to lobby government.”

It has also been announced that Ben Beadle has been named as the Chief Executive of the newly formed NRLA when it launches in January 2020.

Ben is currently Director of Operations at Touchstone, part of the Places for People housing group. Previously he was Managing Director of TDS Northern Ireland and Director of Customer Service with the TDS, the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.  He will join NRLA in November.
