(See link below to the detail of the Property Conduct and Membership rules).
In summary choosing a licensed Arla Properymark Agent means your money will be protected and you will be dealing with a competent, qualified agent who is committed to the highest standards of customer service and will ensure you fulfill your legal obligations.
To all landlords we offer sound advice in preparing their property for rent and guidance through what can be a daunting set of legal obligations. We provide realistic valuations to create healthy market interest which usually gives landlords more choice when selecting a tenant.
We understand that our clients have different needs and objectives so we offer three distinct service platforms.
Our Let Only service suits landlords comfortable with all aspects of managing their property who need our expertise only to find the right tenant.
Let Plus is for those who wish to be partially involved, for instance, arranging for their own property maintenance but would prefer to step back from rent and deposit discussions.
Fully Managed is for landlords who do not want any direct involvement in servicing the tenancy. Whatever your requirements, we are flexible and willing to discuss how we might tailor our service to meet your needs.
