Playing it safe during hard times

IN THESE times of financial uncertainty it is wise to choose an agent who can offer the most security for landlords and tenants.

Newmans Residential Lettings in Rugby has voluntarily signed up to the Safe Agent scheme to provide even more security and peace of mind.

Lettings manager Pam Wattam said: “Being a member of Safe Agent denotes that we are an agency that protects landlords and tenants money through client money protection schemes.

“Landlords and tenants often make decisions based on cost but it is important to ensure you ask your agent for details of the organisation they are regulated by and whether or not they are covered by a client money protection scheme.”

She added: “All agents regulated by ARLA/NFOPP, the Law Society, NALS and RICS maintain and operate separate designated client accounts where your money is held completely separate from the operating funds of the firm.

“If the agent you are using cannot provide you with the assurance of knowing they are covered by a client money protection scheme the question you need to ask is why not?”
