Haslams are proud to be an ARLA Propertymark Protected Agent
Whether you have a property to rent out or are searching for a home, you need an agent that you can trust and rely on when issues arise. The quality of the agent makes a real difference.
If you are a landlord, you need professional service and the confidence that your agent will manage your investment in your best interests. As a tenant, you need the reassurance that maintenance issues will be dealt with promptly and your tenancy will run smoothly.
ARLA Propertymark protected agents help landlords to find the right tenants, and tenants to enjoy their their treasured homes.
Every year tenants and landlords suffer through dealing with agents who are inexperienced or do not adhere to the law. In the worst cases financial losses can add up to millions of pounds.
As an ARLA Propertymark agent we are regulated to ensure we work to a higher standard than the law demands.
What is Propertymark Protection
As an ARLA Propertymark Protected agent we have to hold your money in a seperate client account which is independently inspected annually. This is not the case with all lettings agents.
We do all that we can to provide you with a professional service, but if things go wrong the ARLA Propertymark Client Money Protection Scheme (CMP) will step in and reimburse tenants and landlords.*
*Subject to CMP scheme limits
