Buy to let sees more nails in coffin
The changing scene in the rental market has led to a sharp increase in ARLA membership. The number of lettings offices belonging to the Association of Residential Letting Agents jumped from 1715 to 1815 during the first six months of the year. This is the greatest single period of growth since the introduction of the Housing Act '88 and it is set to continue with new applications coming in at a rate of 30 a month.
