Merger of two landlord bodies is put back after over-ambitious timescale

The merger of the two main landlord bodies in the UK has been delayed.

The Residential Landlords Association and the National Landlords Association had been due to become one super-entity this month.

However, yesterday evening a statement said: “The National Residential Landlords Association – NRLA – the body formed by the merger of the RLA and NLA, remains on plan to merge.

“Despite a target of January being set at the time of the members’ vote last September this was ambitious and technicalities have put dates back by a few weeks. 

“NRLA CEO Ben Beadle says members of both associations continue to receive full services. Amalgamation of resources is going well and the new organisation will roll out within a few weeks.”

The merged organisation is due to represent over 80,000 landlords, owning and managing half a million properties, equivalent to about 10% of the private rented sector in England and Wales.
