Which landlord association is the best one to join, the NRLA or British Landlords association?
I am a member of the British landlord association. I was a member of the national landlords association for years. I thought they were useless. I joined the RLA, they were slightly better. Then when it came to renewal a friend told me about the BLA. I thought it's free so I have nothing to lose.
I have to say the BLA is much better than the National landlords association or the RLA. I found the BLA helpline to be very good, their lawyers know what they are doing.
Hope my experience helps you.
Peter, I don't know what the NLA is like, I was a member of the RLA, I then joined the BLA, I thought there would be a catch, the membership cant be free. I have been a member for 2 years now. The membership is actually free. Like Wayne I used the helpline once, it is a fantastic service. I would recommend the BLA, why pay for membership when you don't need to.
The NLA have a very good campaign capability. There landlord helpline is useless. I think the networking is pretty good too.
My experience i dont think you can beat the BLA membership is free and i got £400 aid which the BLA to help with my tenant.
The NLA or RLA take money you never get any money from them.
Steve what aid ???, you said the BLA gave you £400. I have problems with my tenant. My tenant jasnt paid for 6 months. How can i get this £400. Can you please tell me?
Hi Dereck, you are a BLA Member i presume. If you are you would have got an email from the BLA regarding CFA coronavirus financial Aid. Its £400 which all existing BLA members get to help deal with defaulting tenants. Ring the helpline if you are a member and ask them about it.
I got my CFA and the work done in 36 hours. Very impressive. I havent been paid rent for over 5 months now. Seems my tenant isnt goong to pay. The BLA help came just at the right time.
