Checklist: Why join a landlord association?



The National Residential Landlords Association is the UK's largest membership organisation for private residential landlords, supporting and representing over 80,000 members. The association was created from the merger of the RLA and NLA in April 2020.

NRLA members range from full-time landlords running property portfolios to those letting single bedroom flats. Whatever their status, most landlords face the same regulatory and legal challenges, with over 100 Acts of Parliament and 400 sets of regulations governing the private residential lettings sector.

Top three tips

  1. In England, at the start of the tenancy give the tenant a copy of the EPC, gas safety certificate and a copy of How to rent: the checklist for renting in England. You can't serve a Section 21 without serving this first.

  2. Protect the deposit (if taken) in a relevant scheme within 30 days of receipt of the deposit. Once the deposit is protected, ensure that all parties (parents, partners) that have contributed towards the deposit are given a copy of the Certificate, Prescribed information and Scheme Leaflet. Get a signature confirming that the tenant(s) have received this information.

  3. Make sure you have smoke alarms on every floor of your property and carbon monoxide alarms in every room with a solid fuel source.
