Safe Agent Awarness Week
From the 6th June to 10th June our office was got involved in SafeAgent Awarness Week. What is SafeAgent Awarness week you may ask, well its helping landlords and tenants understand the benefits of using a registered SafeAgent (such as ourselves)
SAFE (SAFE Agent Fully Endorsed) is a mark which denotes that your lettings and management agent is part of a Client Money Protection Scheme which will protect your money in the event that anything should happen to it.
From 27 May 2015, under the requirements set out in the Consumer Rights Act, it became compulsory for lettings and management agents to display in their offices and on their website whether or not they are part of a Client Money Protection Scheme so it is important that you check whether they can offer you that peace of mind in knowing that your money is protected.
In addition to the peace of mind it brings when you see the SAFEagent logo, any agent registered with SAFEagent must be part of a regulatory organisation in the Private Rented Sector ensuring that they meet defined standards of customer service and client accounting practices.
