In September 2019, the RLA launched its third quarterly survey of the year. This survey looked at issues related to tax, finance & the wider supply side of the Private Rented Sector (PRS). With the survey being launched at a time when a General Election was becoming a stronger possibility, the survey also asked landlords to comment on potential policy issues including "Right to Buy" and the promotion of energy efficiency measures.
The home for research
PEARL, the RLA’s research lab, 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 policymakers 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 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.
