The home for research

PEARL, the RLA’s research based policy exchange, was set up to provide high-quality research and analysis on the economic, social and political issues facing the private rented sector.

The RLA believes in the importance of policy makers considering the evidence and the potential consequences in their decision-making. Through PEARL, we provide the expertise, evidence and research, to enable evidence led policy making in the private rented sector.

Our ultimate aim is to influence decision makers in order to translate our research findings into an improve renting experience. Enabling landlords to do the right thing – for their businesses, their tenants, and the industry as a whole.
