    any NLA or RLA members here???

    The NLA (National Landlords Association) and the RLA (Residential Landlords Association) have proposed their intention to merge this year and create one organisation for landlords and no longer compete. It will now be known as the NRLA (National Residential Landlords Association) and will have 80,000 landlords in membership. Together, its members will manage or own 500,000 properties.

    It is worth being a member of one or the other, I am actually a member of both! The RLA has an excellent advice service

        been a member of the RLA and currently member of NLA simply because their website doesn't want to make me vomit on someone responsible for it...

        apart from being accredited and the occasional phonecall to the helpline, I've not found much use for it. Documentation is sparse -Tenant Verify has far better. The helpline has been mediocre and some of their PD materials have actually been completely wrong resulting in me writing in to them and them being amended.

        So, hardly any value really... and very little a proactive landlord couldn't source elsewhere.

          Not quite. The LL can apply to Court for Right of Access & ask Court to apply costs against T.

          I think you need a valid EPC before the Property can be advertised for sale/rent, but not for an eviction.

          I have a single property which I have owned since 1998. I currently have had the same tennent for about 10 years. When she began the tennency there was no requirement to have an epc and I was unaware that I needed one! I have decided to sell the property as I am now 70 years old and want the capital....

          Not quite correct. If the tenant refuses upgrades, which is his/her right this is a ground to apply for exemption...

          This is not likely to be valid or easy employed. It does not sound like a deed. What witnesses were there? How many witnesses and who were they? Do you have proof of ID for the Guarantor and witnesses?

          But yes, they are most likely chancers using the law to try to diddle you.

          by Lillylisa
          Hi. I am a fairly new landlord and I only own one property. About a month ago I reached out to my tenants asking if they were okay and if they wanted to get in contact with me please do. Three days later they contacted me to ask for a massive reduction in the rent asking for 35% off. I have no issues...

          Then unfortunately, you will have difficulty enforcing the guarantee (unless your guarantor is named as a tenant or the tenancy agreement is executed as a deed). The reason for that is because

          With your tenancy agreement
          • You give the tenants a tenancy, they give you rent (consideration)
          • Guarantor

          To be clear: the guarantor signed the contract which has a section called The Guarantor which clearly lays out his/her legal liabilities. In this case, he is liable for all the rent not just for his nephews. I’m sure they would not want this to fall to him. They have been very good tenants so far....
