ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) Propertymark is the UK's foremost professional body for letting agents. Its members are professionals working at all levels of letting agency, from business owners to office employees.
ARLA was formed in 1981 as the professional and regulatory body for letting agents in the UK. It was recognised that the requirements of the residential lettings market were so detailed and specific that a separate organisation was required to promote standards in this important and growing sector of the property market.
