I'm a Tenant
Moving into a new home can be an exciting time... new home, new surroundings and a time to meet new neighbours and friends. For the unfortunate few, it can also be a rather stressful time, especially if your landlord, your agent and even worse, your new home is not what you expected.
The Residential Landlords Association works hard to support over 30,000 members (landlords and letting agents across the country) in working to best practice and providing clean, warm and safe property to tenants, as well as providing them with the necessary skills and support to manage tenancies to a very high standard.
A Guide for Tenants
Being a landlord is not a simple case of handing over a set of keys and collecting rent, it's a huge responsibility as landlords are required to follow over 100 different laws and statutes at the same time as providing warm, safe and secure accommodation.
Tenants also have a responsibility, which is to co-operate and help the landlords to perform their responsibilities. With this in mind, we have produced a short, handy guide for tenants, covering a number of areas including finding a home, choosing the right landlord and/or agent and more.
Get Future Updates
From time to time, we may update this tenant section and we may get in touch from time to time to gather the thoughts of tenants in relation to satisfaction with their home, their landlord and their letting agent.
If you would like to receive occasional updates and opportunities to give us your opinions, you are welcome to leave us some basic details by clicking on Get Future Updates.
Code of Conduct
The RLA's Code of Conduct, is a simple, common sense set of guidelines that all RLA members must agree to before joining the RLA and continue to operate under throughout their membership lifetime. This set of rules form the foundations for good tenancy and property management, so you can be confident that any member of the RLA should follow these guidelines.
