ARLA launches landlord survey

The Association of Residential Letting Agents is urging landlords to complete its online survey.

ARLA research aims to counter misconceptions about the buy-to-let market so both the private rented sector and private investors can make informed judgements. It is therefore urging landlord to completes its survey, the results of which can be used to inform and persuade government and its agencies when legislation and regulation is being framed.

Data is also used to inform academia, think tanks, various financial sectors and the media. It also provides a statistical picture to mortgage lenders to enable them to formulate new or better products suited to the needs of the marketplace.
The survey consists of 14 questions and takes around five minutes to complete. The survey should only be completed if you currently own and let one or more properties.

Answers will only be used to create reports and not shared with third parties. The report will be published on the ARLA web site in January 2006.

Every person who completes the survey will be entered into a prize draw to win a 20 Amazon.co.uk voucher. Winners will be drawn on December 15.
