Making renting better

At the RLA, we understand the challenges you face as a landlord - after all, we've been fighting your corner for over 20 years. Providing the expertise, support and tools you need, so you can do the right thing - by you, your tenants and the industry as a whole.

We're home to over 35,000 members nationwide, with a combined portfolio of over a quarter of a million properties. A growing community of landlords who trust and rely on us to deliver day-to-day support, expert advice, government campaigning, plus a range of high-quality services relevant to your needs.

Our vision is to make renting better by going the extra mile to ensure we have an informed, better educated and more supported membership community.
