This is a turnaround from 2012, when UKALA’s operations were taken over by the National Landlords Association and the NLA relaunched in a bid to reverse a declining membership – which it is has very successfully done.If you are interested becoming UKALA’s next NED, please email, requesting an information pack at [email protected] The closing date for applications is 18th August 2017.  Richard Lambert tim clark July 18, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
