Client Money protection – who cares?
If you are considering letting out your property, or investing in a property to let how will you decide which letting agency you are going to appoint?
The first question many prospective landlords ask is “what are your fees”? Selecting an agent with low management fees and saving a few pounds every week may end up costing you far more in the long run. The first question I would ask an agent is “which Client Money Protection scheme do you use?” Letting agents handle millions of pounds of rents and deposits, but do not have to be regulated, as membership of Government approved schemes which offer client money protection and independent redress is voluntary.
I would therefore strongly urge landlords to ask this one question of their agents and use an agent who cares enough to offer this protection to their customers.
