Bramleys are pleased to accounce they are now a Safe Agent fully endorsed company, another professional body we subscribe to for your peace of mind. Safe agent is a mark denoting firms that protect landlords and tenants money through a client money protection scheme. Full details of the scope of the scheme can be obtained from us.
Finding the right Letting agent to use can be a minefield and all too often Landlords and Tenants can make decisions based on cost but it is important to ensure you ask your agent for details of the organisation they are regulated by and whether or not they are covered by a client money protection scheme.
All agents who are part of ARLA/NAEA, the Law Society, NALS and RICS maintain and operate separate designated client accounts where your money is held completely separately from the operating funds of the firm. If the agent you are using cannot provide you with the assurance of knowing they are covered by a client money protection scheme the question you need to ask is why and is your money really safe.
We would stongly advise you consider the consequences of not using an agent registered with one of these bodies. For knowledgable advice regarding letting or being a Landlord please get in touch with our team
