A NATIONAL campaign is set to benefit tenants and landlords in Warwickshire by calling for everyone to ensure that their money is safe by choosing a local letting agent which is part of a Client Money Protection Scheme.

SAFEagent Awareness Week runs this week. It is a national campaign to highlight the importance of Client Money Protection Schemes.

The appeal comes as official statistics show that home ownership is in decline and more people are turning to the private rented sector.

Newman Residential Letting in Rugby is urging all would-be tenants and landlords to look for the SAFEagent logo, an easily identifiable mark to immediately see that their money is protected.

Caroline Newman, director of Newman Residential Letting, said: “Many people are not in a position to buy their own homes and will be renting for many years to come. It is therefore of the utmost importance to choose a letting agent with whom they know their money is protected.”

Newman Residential Letting has been signed up to SAFEagent since the campaign launched to consumers last September.
