ARLA launches buy-to-let masterclasses for investors

The Association of Residential Letting Agents has stepped in to fill the education gap for investors in the private rented sector following adverse reports of expensive buy-to-let teach-ins.

The ARLA masterclasses for buy-to-let investors are being launched in the North-West. The first full day seminar is to be held at the Manchester Conference Centre on May 13. This will be followed by London on May 21, Brighton on May 26 and Bristol on June 15.

The programme will be rolled out in the autumn and it is intended to cover all the major centres of buy-to-let activity in the country.

ARLA says it has drawn in experts from all parts of the industry to link up with ARLA member letting agents from each region. Senior executives from the mortgage, legal and insurance industries will take classes and be available to meet delegates face-to-face between the sessions.

Full details of the ARLA masterclasses are available at or by calling the ticket hotline on 08706 070711. The ticket price for a full day of masterclasses including all courses, full documentation, lunch and refreshments is £200 per delegate including VAT.
