Membership of the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) has hit 35,000.

Set up by landlords, for landlords back in 1998, the not-for-profit association – Britain’s leading landlord body – has seen huge growth in recent years, reaching the milestone less than two years after hitting the 30,000 mark.

Answering more than 66,000 calls to its helpline and live chat services in the last year, the association also trained more than 4,000 landlords and provided more than 350,000 documents to members and has a top, five-star Trustpilot rating.

The RLA is also a force to be reckoned with in Westminster, with its work quoted 49 times in Parliament last year.

The RLA is now extending a huge thank you to all its members for helping the association become the leading voice for landlords across England and Wales.

RLA Chairman Alan Ward said: “This is a massive achievement for the RLA and a testament to the hard work and commitment of the RLA team.

“In just over three years we have seen our ranks swelled by 15,000 landlords who are turning to us for help when it comes to navigating the increasingly challenging landscape of the PRS.

“We would like to extend a huge thank you to these members – and welcome our new recruits – and assure them we will continue our fight to support and represent them to make renting better.”
