Launch of “State of the PRS” Quarterly Survey

Written by Tom Simcock

To make renting better we are conducting extensive research into the different issues affecting landlords, tenants and the sector.

As part of our long term research strategy we are conducting regular quarterly surveys with landlords, agents and members to understand how recent changes (including tax changes) are impacting on their letting business and also trends in the wider sector.

We are now inviting landlords, agents and members to participate in the first quarterly survey of 2017 and to help us to develop an in-depth understanding of the sector.

This is your opportunity to make your voice heard and contribute to the RLA’s research and campaigning work.

We will be closing the survey on the 12th April 2017 at 5pm and we appreciate the time everyone takes to participate in this research.

To say thank you to members, landlords and agents for completing the survey we will be running a prize draw* with the chance to win one years free membership (or next years membership free for existing members) with the RLA.

Please take the survey here

*Terms and conditions apply for the prize draw. Only responses submitted before 5pm on the 12th April 2017 will be accepted. The RLA reserves the right to change the terms of this prize draw at any point.
