Association of Residential Managing Agents

Members' Area



As you are aware, we are all in unprecedented times. We know that the COVID-19 Pandemic will have an impact on people and companies on an unparalleled scale and exactly how it will unfold is still uncertain.

Recently imposed restrictions to daily life have forced us to quickly adopt different ways of working, learning and connecting with each other.

We know that social distancing measures will be in place for the foreseeable future and during this time ARMA has adapted its classroom training courses and will now offer them as live online training.

We are aware during these difficult times that training courses will need to be run to suit our members needs and rather than running a full-day course over one full-day we are running these over consecutive days to allow you to plan your day accordingly around this. Full details of the dates and times are provided on each course by selecting READ MORE/BOOK.

We are able to offer block bookings to members at a further discounted rate and also provide online in-house training courses for your staff. Please also contact us directly for further information on this:



In advance of all of our ARMA training courses we require you to undertake a check on the system requirements using this link

The reason for this is that it will help you avoid any connection issues for you prior to joining our training course. If this is not undertaken until the course commences you may experience technical issues which we may not be able to resolve for you once the training course has commenced.


When the webinar begins, you will be connected to audio using your computer's microphone and speakers (VoIP).Please note that not all laptops have this ability and so we recommend that you use a headset if this should be the case as this will allow you to hear the webinar. 

Please make sure that you check if your computer has a microphone and speakers and if not please ensure that you have a headset that you can use. Please do not wait until the course commences before this is checked.

Property managers dealing with leasehold properties will often be faced with situations where a leaseholder has asked for permission to carry out work to their flat, or to sub-let the flat to another person, or even for permission to have an animal in the property. They will also have to deal with cases where a leaseholder has not asked for permission but has just gone ahead and done something forbidden by their lease. Knowing when permission is required and the basis for giving or refusing consent is an important part of residential leasehold management.


This is often a hotly disputed area and it has recently led to a Supreme Court decision that all property  managers need to be aware of when dealing with requests.

This half-day course will give property managers confidence to deal with requests for consent in an efficient and lawful manner.

The workshop will address the following from a legal perspective:

  • When is consent needed?
  • Alterations – structural and non-structural
  • Sub-letting
  • Animals
  • Reasonableness of refusing consent
  • Disability and Equality Act 2010
  • Requests for consent where an RTM company is operating
  • Drawing up a licence



Any property manager dealing with residential leasehold property.
