New landlords are inevitably curious about fees. Some ask about fees and little else. Others tend to follow up with questions about how properties are managed and what safeguards they have in the event of problems etc.
At a general level we price in line with the better agents in town. These agents are regulated, meaning their client accounts are checked on a periodic basis, and in the event of problems the landlord has an independent means of redress. Usually these agents will be a member of ARLA Propertymark, Safeagent or RICS.. If you get a better ‘all in’ price from a regulated agent in Harrogate, Belvoir guarantees to match it.
There are also some unregulated agents in Harrogate who are not subjected to financial checks, and do not belong to any redress scheme. They will nearly always be cheaper, and Belvoir will not price match them.
