Letting agents

Joining ARLA Propertymark demonstrates your dedication to professionalism, development and the industry itself. Whilst ability and experience are highly sought-after by employers, being a member of a professional body can help you to stand out from the competition and give you an edge when applying for a new job or internal promotion.


If you don't have a letting qualification, you can join at the student grade (even if you're not working in the industry). You will have three years at this grade to get qualified and upgrade your membership. You won't be able to use the letters or logo until you do.

The only difference between this grade and Member grade is that Associates do not work for an ARLA Propertymark Protected company. You get the same benefits but won't be able to use the letters MARLA or the logo until your membership is upgraded.

You must have at least the Level 2 qualification (Level 5 for Scotland) and work for an ARLA Propertymark Protected agency. Use our 'Find an Expert' search to see if your agency is ARLA Propertymark Protected.

You must have the Level 4 qualification and work for an ARLA Propertymark Protected agency. You must also be able to provide evidence that you have five years' industry experience.

The 'Grandfathering Scheme' enables your director to join without having to become qualified first. They would instead nominate you, as a qualified member, during their application process. You must be qualified to at least Level 3 standard (Level 6 for Scotland).

Once your director is a member, the agency would become ARLA Propertymark Protected through their membership and you will be able to upgrade to the Member or Fellow grade.

ARLA Propertymark logo

Using the logo and letters MARLA/FARLA

Student and Associate grade members are not able to use the logo or designatory letters until their membership is upgraded. Only members who work for an ARLA Propertymark Protected company can use the logo; this means that the director is a member and we regulate the company as part of their membership. We do this to limit any uncertainties consumers may have surrounding the protection afforded to them by our members.


Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

CPD is integral to membership. It ensures that you continue to be at the forefront of your profession and forms a significant part of how we demonstrate to our entire audience, the professionalism of our members. More info...
