Why use a Protected Estate Agent?
Every year, unlicensed estate agents cost the general public thousands of pounds because they don’t have protective measures in place to guarantee your money. A licensed estate agent is qualified and is required to keep up to date with the latest developments in the market and with the ever changing legislation affecting the sales and lettings industry. Without this knowledge and expertise you may be badly advised or mislead – or you may even suffer a financial loss as a result.
A protected estate agent abides by the strict codes of practise as well as rules of conduct. This means you can be assured that the service you receive is to the highest of standard and your enquiry will be dealt with professionally and fairly. In the unlikely event that things go wrong, a licensed estate agent has a written complaints procedure. If you are not completely satisfied with the service you have received from a licensed estate agent and cannot resolve the issue directly, you have the option of taking your complaint to independent adjudication and redress through The Property Ombudsman.
The Property Ombudsman
As a member of The Property Ombudsman, we abide by the code of practice for residential sales and the code of practise for residential lettings which has been approved by the Trading Standards Institute under the Consumer Codes Approval Scheme. All of our staff are made familiar with the codes of practise of The Property Ombudsman as well as our comprehensive internal complaints procedure.
All estate agents are required to register with an Estate Agent Redress Scheme which can investigate complaints from members of the public. The Property Ombudsman is an approved scheme under the Consumers, Estate Agents and Redress Act 2007. For further information, please visit tpos.co.uk.
