This year, Haybrook Lettings agents are showing their support for National SAFEagent Awareness Week 2017, taking place from 15th – 19th May 2017. The week is supposed to highlight to tenants and landlords the risks of using an agent who is not part of a Client Money Protection (CMP) Scheme and what measures they can take to best avoid them; one of which being that they always stay on the lookout for the SAFEagent logo, denoting those agents that are subscribed to a Client Money Protection (CMP) Scheme).
The week’s importance is furthered due to the Government’s announcement in April when they announced that they would make Client Money Protection compulsory for all lettings agents.
Operations Director Paul Sloan comments: “If you work with a lettings agent that is a member of SAFEagent you can be sure that your money is properly protected. We are proud to be founder members of SAFEagent and work hard with them to fight for legislation that protects our customers from rogue agents. Every year, landlords and tenants lose thousands of pounds to agents that simply disappear with their money. That is why working with a SAFEagent like us is so important.”
Haybrook lettings agents are an established agent with CMP already in place. If you’re thinking or renting or letting a property with us, contact your local Haybrook lettings branch today.
