The 'Grandfathering Scheme' enables your director to join without having to become qualified first. They would instead nominate you, as 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...
