Landlord Law Conference sponsors – ARLA

ARLALandlords are not the only people attending the Landlord Law Conference – we also have many letting agent delegates.

So we were delighted when the Association of Residential Letting Agents, ARLA, agreed to be one of our sponsors (along with our lead sponsor TDS).

About ARLA

ARLA, as you probably already know, are a professional membership and regulatory body for letting agents and letting agencies in the UK.

In fact in many ways they are THE professional membership and regulatory body – as they are the only one to be solely concerned with lettings and letting agents.

The benefits of using an ARLA agent

Nothing can be 100% safe, but if you use an ARLA licensed agent, you are more likely than not, going to have an agent who will look after your property properly.  This is because their members:

  • all have client money protection schemes
  • are properly trained and have to carry out continuing professional development every year
  • follow the Code of Practice and Rules of Conduct laid down by ARLA, and
  • all belong to an independent redress scheme such as the Property Ombudsman

ARLA and the Landlord Law Conference

One of the reasons that ARLA have decided to sponsor the Landlord Law Conference is the legal content – legal issues are an important aspect of being both a landlord and an agent, and ignorance of the law can cause big problems.

Or to quote ARLA MD, Ian Potter :

ARLA are delighted to be involved with this event. Without Landlords agents would not have a business and an event such as this helps the landlord understand the complexity of their responsibility to the transaction.

One of the things we require of anyone wishing to become an ARLA member is that they pass a qualification covering landlord and tenant law, and we know many landlords also take our Technical Award in Residential Lettings and Management. All in all that allows them better understand a problem and work out the best answer for all involved.

Representatives from ARLA will be at the Conference, so delegates will be able to ask them any questions they may have about the ARLA service.
