Selecting an Agent

There is a large selection of letting and Estate Agents in Sutton & surroundings and as a Landlord it can be very difficult to distinguish one from another. Here are a few tips to ensure you select the right letting agent who can provide the best service following all regulations.

.Regulatory requirements

Letting Agents are unregulated which means that anyone can open their doors and call themselves a letting agent. To counter this, look for an agent that has invested in operating a professional lettings business. Look for agents that:

-Are members of a professional body such NALS, ARLA or RICS. Additionally check whether the agent is a SAFE AGENT member.

-Are members of The Property Ombudsman (TPO). The Ombudsman has a code of conduct and is also the place where complaints can be registered.

-Has client money protection in place to ensure your money is protected.

-Has professional indemnity insurance in place to ensure that if the agent is negligent you will have some financial protection.

-Is registered with one of the deposit protection schemes. Tenant deposits have to be properly protected and if not there are heavy fines.
