NRLA and Scottish Association of Landlords create new partnership

Em Morley - August 5, 2020

A new partnership has been announced between the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) and the Scottish Association of Landlords (SAL).

This will allow landlords who let properties across England, Wales and Scotland to have joint membership with these associations.

The NRLA and SAL are partnering so that landlords with properties north and south of the border can pay a small top-up fee to become a member of both organisations.

Ben Beadle, Chief Executive of the NRLA said: “We are delighted to be partnering with SAL. Whilst the housing framework is very different across the United Kingdom, there is a commonality in landlords facing increasing challenges as they get to grips with mounting regulation, no matter where they operate. We are very much better together to ensure the needs of landlords are properly taken into account.

“The NRLA represents and advises landlords in England and Wales, but it’s clear that with such different legislative landscapes, landlords with properties in Scotland need specialist support.”

The NRLA is a combination of the National Landlords Association (NLA) and the Residential Landlords Association (RLA). The two organisations merged in April 2020 to represent over 80,000 landlords in England and Wales.

John Blackwood, chief executive of SAL said: “In these difficult times, now more than ever before, landlords throughout the United Kingdom need to work together to ensure that our voice is heard. Our partnership with the NRLA is great news for every landlord operating across Scotland, England, and Wales looking for support in their letting business.

“By being a joint member of SAL and NRLA, landlords can now benefit from accessing a wider range of specialist services at a reduced combined membership fee.”
