The two principle landlord associations in the UK are to merge to create a "national unified voice for private-residential landlords".

A merger between the National Landlords Association (NLA) and the National Federation of Residential Landlords (NFRL) will, according to the two bodies, create a "wider range of products and services being made available to members".

David Salusbury, chairman, NLA, in welcoming the merger, said the union will "mean increased commercial benefits to our members but also a greater ability to influence policy at all levels".
Commenting on the newly enlarged NLA, Barry Markham, Chairman of the NFRL has said that the decision will allow landlords a stronger platform to voice their opinions and have their "views represented clearly".

He continued: "It remains critical that the NLA continues to lobby Government and highlight the important role that landlords play in providing decent and affordable rental accommodation."

The NLA will now represent nearly 20,000 landlords and current members of the NFRL will become part of the NLA.
