What is ARLA?

The Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) is the largest professional body representing letting agents in the UK. Present-day members range from all varying tiers of letting agency organisations, from office employees to leading business managers.

Formed in 1981, ARLA was known as the first professional and regulatory body for letting agents in Great Britain. The foundation of the organisation came after it was noted that a separate company was required to keep standards up in the important and growing sector of the property market.

ARLA is currently based in Warwick, with additional operational offices in London and Edinburgh. Their primary roles include providing support and guidance to property professionals across all ranges of the market. One of ARLA’s key principles is to make the property market more streamlined and user-efficient for both homebuyers and sellers.

In its role as one of the biggest organisations in the property industry, ARLA is proud to be able to offer benefits to consumers and letting agents alike.
