Spicerhaart lettings agents are showing their support for National SAFEagent Awareness Week 2017, taking place from 15th – 19th May 2017. It is a week created to raise raising awareness to both landlords and tenants about the importance of using an agent who is part of a Client Money Protection (CMP) Scheme. It’s imperative that tenants and landlords know about the risks involved and what they can take to avoid them; the biggest one being that they always keep an eye out for the SAFEagent logo, which signals those agents that are subscribed to a Client Money Protection (CMP) Scheme).
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.”
In early April, the Government announced their plan to make Client Money Protection compulsory for all lettings agents.
