The Association of Residential Letting Agents 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.

Tenants in the private sector give their landlords a deposit against possible dilapidations or damage to the property. When a tenancy comes to an end, there is usually no disagreement about the return of the deposit. But sometimes there is, and this can cause much hardship and inconvenience to both the landlord and the tenant. The Tenancy Deposit Scheme for Regulated Agents (TDSRA) has been developed to ensure that the deposits they hold are protected and that disputes about their return are resolved swiftly, inexpensively and impartially.
