Types of Membership

ARMA offers a variety of membership statuses. In order to determine which is the correct one for you, here is a quick overview of what you need to know before you apply.

Eligibility for ARMA Membership


If your company has been trading successfully as a managing agent in residential long leasehold properties for at least two years, you are eligible to apply to become a Member.

If you are a housing association with two years successful experience of managing residential long leasehold property and wish to join ARMA, you must apply to become an ARMA Member.

Associate Category

This category is available to managing agents and housing associations who are working towards becoming a Member but don't yet meet the two year trading rule, or who may have had their application for accreditation declined.

Partner Category

This is available to a company that is not directly involved in block management but whose services are essential for managing agents. This includes commerical service providers, such as accountancy firms, solicitors, insurance, management services, debt collection etc.

Affiliate Category

This is available for non-commercial companies involved in the management of leasehold blocks of flats but not eligible for Membership such as: Landlords, Residents’ Management Companies (RMC), Right to Manage Companies (RTM) and Residents’ Associations.

This category is also available to housing associations acting solely as a registered provider and therefore also the landlord of the estate.

New Login Details

Because of the nature of the information needed as part of your application, we have introduced some extra security measures to protect the data you provide.

To make the process as easy as possible, everything is online. Once we have received your Membership Enquiry Form, you will be assigned a new 'admin' account to manage your application. This will allow you to keep the information you provide secure.

The Application Dashboard allows you to apply for membership in three easy to manage stages:

Stage 1: Login to the application portal. Depending on your current membership status, your unique login details will automatically direct you to the correct online application form. You will then need to complete the online membership application form.

Stage 2: Upload the information required to support your application. The documentary evidence you will be asked to provide will depend on your eligibility for Member or Associate Status. If applying for Member Status you will need to demonstrate compliance with the ARMA Accreditation Standards.

Stage 3: Accept the Declaration of Compliance. At the end of the application process, you will be asked to state that your company is fully compliant with the ARMA Accreditation Standards and that it operates according to the principles of the Consumer Charter as well as complying with the Association’s aims and objectives. Once you have accepted the declaration of compliance, your application will be submitted and you will be asked to chose your payment option.

*Firms applying for Associate Status will be asked to state that their company is fully compliant with the ARMA Bye-Laws, RICS Code, and relevant legislation.

The dashboard also allows you to monitor the progress of your application. Once you successfully complete a stage, its icon will turn blue on the dashboard.
