ARMA’s Standards

ARMA members work to high professional standards and must be part of an independent ombudsman scheme. They agree to comply with the RICS ‘Service Charge Residential Management Code’ and to abide by ARMA’s rules of membership.

ARMA Accreditation (formely know as ARMA-Q) is a real milestone for consumer protection in the residential leasehold sector. It is based on standards developed specifically for the leasehold property management sector and independent regulation.

All ARMA members now have to comply with the Standards and a Consumer Charter.
