Tremendous strides for SAFEagent…….

8 12 2011

It was launched only this year, but SAFEagent has already made tremendous strides – and is mentioned in the Government’s new housing strategy, published this week.

The scheme shows landlords and tenants via a simple logo which agents have Client Money Protection insurance.
 
In an unequivocal endorsement, the paper’s section on the private rented sector says: “Many consumers, both landlords and tenants, do not realise the importance of choosing a lettings agency with client money protection in place. This ensures that their money is safe if, for example, the agent goes out of business.

The Government has supported SAFEagent since its official launch in early September. Housing minister Grant Shapps has encouraged lettings and management agents to sign up to the kitemark and published leaflets encouraging landlords and tenants to use SAFE agents.  
In addition to Government support, key organisations including Shelter, NUS, Trading Standards Institute, Council of Mortgage Lenders, Residential Landlords Association, the Property Ombudsman and the British Property Federation have all allied themselves to SAFEagent. Key suppliers to the sector who are also supportive include HomeLet and GMG.

Belvoir Stoke are proud to be SAFEagents.
