The National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) is the UK's leading professional body for estate agency. Its members practice across all aspects of property both in the UK and overseas, including residential and commercial sales and lettings, property management, business transfer, auctioneering and land. The Association was established with the goal of upholding good practice and high professional standards in the UK. Today, its key roles include providing help and guidance for property professionals across a broad spectrum of disciplines, while continually campaigning to make the property market more efficient and user-friendly for the home buying and selling public.
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.
