NALS’ mission is to make the Private Rented Sector (PRS) a better, safer place for all. One of the key ways we do this is through our work with Trading Standards teams across the country.
You may have seen two recent court cases concerning agents operating in Islington and Southwarkin London. In both cases, we worked with Trading Standards to aid prosecution, and we welcome their proactivity in bringing these cases to court. By working together, we ensure that consumers are protected and we stop these criminal agents from operating in the PRS.
Commenting, Isobel Thomson, NALS CEO:
“NALS is delighted at the recent outcomes of these cases, which thanks to the hard work of Trading Standards shows that agents who commit crimes and act fraudulently will be prosecuted. It is crucial that consumers can trust in the PRS, and that the good agents who operate with the highest levels of professionalism are not being tarred by these rogues.”
