Landlords seeking the help of letting agents in Shropshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands should be in no doubt that by employing the services of a regulated firm they have far greater protection should anything untoward happen when letting their property.
For most of us it remains astonishing that not all letting agents have voluntarily elected to become regulated by the industry leading body, the Association of Letting Agents (ARLA). As a landlord looking to appoint a new agent it will be important to feel that you have made the right choice and importantly have real faith in your agent. After all, we as your agent, will be looking after what is possibly your most prized asset.
So what does an agent with ARLA accreditation offer?
In simple terms you can rest assured that your agent will follow a due set of processes that ensure their back office systems are run in a professional manner. This will include some of the more basic processes such as managing viewings and client expectations ensuring all forms of advertising are both accurate and fair. More detailed processes will include carrying out thorough referencing, drawing up legal documents, administering tenancy deposits in an efficient and fair manner and importantly ensuring that in the event that something does go wrong that all client monies including rent are held in appropriate accounts and available for their proper use.
