How to check for money protection:

Similar to losing the value of your car in an accident if you were without insurance, your letting agent not being covered could mean you lose money you're entitled to. This could happen if your letting agent misappropriates your funds, 'runs off' or goes out of business.

It is estimated that 40% of letting agents aren't protected. Here's our tips from ARLA propertymark to check your agent is protecting your money:

Check that your agent is covered at propertymark.co.uk/find-agent

In accordance with the Consumer Rights Act, an agent must display in their office and on their website if they have CMP, and who provides it for them. In the same way, an agent must disclose if they have no CMP cover.

ARLA Propertymark suggests you ask your agent:

a. Are you giving tenants all of the documentation required by law at the start of a tenancy?

b. How can you protect me and my property in this increasingly litigious world?

c. What if the tenant defaults on rent payments and what is your timeline of expectations?

"What can I say, after 15 years of managing my flat, the service has been outstanding. Very professional, good communication, Zoe is very pleasant to speak to on the phone. Any issues that have arisen have been resolved very quickly. Thoroughly recommend Homes4Let. Excellent service."

Dennis Fitzpatrick

"Zoe has managed our rental property for over 10 years now and we have always found her friendly and easy to deal with. She has a wealth of knowledge about the rental market and keeps us up to date with all current legislation. During the time Zoe has managed our property we have had a number of tenants and trust her knowledge and judgement in selecting the right tenant for our property. We have regular contact with Zoe as we do not live local to our property and over the period we have known Zoe she has become a friend as well as our letting agent."

Angela Smith

"Zoe is a very friendly person and has looked after our property for many years now. We are totally happy with everything she does for us and the tenants. Zoe promptly lets us know when something needs repairing or renovating and suggests what she could buy for us or who she could call in. We have always been happy with her choices. She also takes care of everything involved in finding tenants and we just have to give her our approval. As we are unable to deal with anything ourselves, we are totally reliant on Zoe and feel very lucky to have her working on our behalf. Thank you Zoe."
