The ARL BTR Code of Practice road testing

The proposed principles of a new Build to Rent (BTR) Code of Practice have been announced for road testing by the BTR sector on their practical implementation. Now you have the opportunity to give your views and insights into the detail behind these principles as we road test how these principles will be applied, implemented, and measured.


The Association for Rental Living (ARL) – formerly known as the UKAA (UK Apartment Association) – has introduced principles for a new Build to Rent Code of Practice that will be road-tested by the sector to refine their implementation.

As the representative body for the institutionally backed, purpose-built rental living sector including Build to Rent (BTR), ARL members and wider stakeholder groups asked the organisation in late 2022 to develop a Code of Practice for the sector on their behalf which would define the standards to which urban and suburban, single and multi-family BTR operates, setting the sector apart from the Buy to Let/Private Rented Sector (PRS), and communicate the culture of BTR.

Since then and following extensive engagement and consultation with ARL members and stakeholders across the entire BTR sector, the ARL has identified seven principles of a new Code of Practice that communicate the culture of BTR. 

The ARL is now calling for the BTR sector to road-test how these principles will be applied, implemented, and measured.
