What are the benefits of using an RICS or ARLA regulated letting agent?*

There is no compulsory regulation within the lettings industry, which means that anybody can call themselves a letting agent.

 

Consequently, many agents have no formal training and don't have to comply with any code of conduct, nor do they have any insurance to protect their clients.

 

Every year, unlicensed letting agents cause Britain's landlords unnecessary stress and hassle - and sometimes loss of money - by giving incorrect or misleading advice or offering poor standards of customer service.

 

Why use an RICS or ARLA member?

If the medical profession were similar, you probably wouldn't consult somebody who called themselves a doctor, but who had no formal training.

 

And you probably wouldn't let an unqualified mechanic service the brakes on your car.

 

So when it comes to letting your property, why risk your financial health by using an unregulated letting agent?

 

Knight Property Management is regulated by both RICS and ARLA, and is also registered with The Ombudsman Service: Property, so you can rest assured that both you and your property are in safe hands.

 

Your money is safe

Letting agents handle substantial amounts of other people's money by way of rental payments, deposits, etc, so it's good to know that your money is safe.

 

We hold all client money in a ring-fenced client account, and it's also protected by a clients' money insurance policy.

 

In addition we are subject to regular financial audits by RICS accountants, to ensure that we comply with all RICS' requirements.
