Propertymark is the leading membership body for property agents. The company has recently been through a series of training courses to keep up with the ever-changing property landscape.
Coppenwall is a member of Propertymark, this means we have met the criteria to join the body. During the process, Coppenwall has had to have a rigorous health check, and ensure we have the appropriate practices, training and procedures in place to achieve the accreditation.
What makes an ARLA Propertymark Protected Letting Agent Different?
Backed by Client Money Protection
Propertymark Protected agencies hold client money in a separate client account. In simple terms, your money is safe and insured by the banks, should an agent unexpectedly go bust, or commit theft.
ARLA Propertymark letting agents are experienced and qualified professionals who undertake regular training to stay up-to-date with complex legislative changes and industry best practice.
Peace of Mind
The agent holds the correct insurance, and is protection by being fully regulated by Propertymark. They also abide by a nationally recognised Code of Practice.
Ruling on complaints through an independent ombudsman services to ensure an impartial outcome.
The regulation of letting agents is a work in progress.
In the meantime there are membership bodies such as Propertymark who continue to ensure excellent practice, and their member agents absolutely have to have qualifications and adhere to strict codes of conduct.
Using a Propertymark Protected member mitigates the chance of issues arising. You can feel more confident about your lettings’ agency, knowing they’re part of a professional body designed to meet high standards and service.
Do look out for them, those are the ones you want to be working with.
