ARLA: Women are the rental market's future

ARLA: Women are the rental market's future

Women represent the future of the property investment sector, according to one industry expert.

Ian Potter, operations manager at the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), said that female landlords are very positive.

To prove his point, he used an example from a recent National Landlords Association (NLA) survey, which showed that 62 per cent of lady landlords are planning to expand their property portfolios in the next year.

Mr Potter was commenting ahead of the NLA Property Women Awards - an event that takes place this summer.

ARLA, which recently backed government proposals to launch a landlord register in the UK, will be sponsoring the Young Property Woman of the Year award.

"We are delighted to be associated with the NLA Property Women Awards 2009," Mr Potter explained. "ARLA members have many female landlords within their client base."

The occasion provides "a perfect opportunity" to celebrate women's contribution to the private rented sector.
