SAFE AGENT


Safe Agent Fully Endorsed - is a mark denoting firms that protect landlords and tenants money through client money protection schemes and bank accounts

There are several schemes in the sector operated by ARLA/NAEA, the Law Society, NALS and RICS to which agents voluntarily belong. These schemes are run by recognised industry bodies or organisations operating in the private rented sector to provide accreditation and/or regulation. 

 

They are completely independent from the letting agent and they do not act on behalf of or have a duty of care to the participating firm. The scope of their CMP schemes varies, and you should contact your agent to find out which scheme they are part of.

Kent Sales and Lettings is a member of the Property Redress Scheme. The ombudsman service ensures that there are systems in place to resolve disputes if/when they occur within the property industry.
