The National Landlords Association (NLA) is the leading independent national organisation for private residential landlords. * a unified voice for over 13,000 members throughout the UK * from large portfolio landlords to single-bedroom flats. * promoting and protecting members' interests to national and local government There are now over 50 Acts of Parliament and more than 70 sets of regulations governing the private-rented sector. This increasingly heavy regulatory burden means it is more important than ever that landlords understand the legal and regulatory environment in which they manage their lettings. We seek a fair legal and regulatory environment for landlord and tenant, and actively lobby the government at all levels on behalf of our members. We also help ensure that our members are aware of their statutory rights and responsibilities. We currently represent over 13,000 fee paying members throughout the UK and from all walks of life; from full-time landlords with large property portfolios to those with houses-of-multiple-occupancy or with single bedroom flats. We employ over 40 staff, based at our London head office and throughout the UK. Our network of regional representatives and branches provide an important link with local authorities and our members.
