This year, 3,000 professional lettings agents across the UK unite for safeagent Awareness Week, 17-21 June 2019. Now in its eighth year, the awareness week celebrates the very best, professional agents in the private rented sector, who work to protect the consumer.
safeagent’s focus has always been consumer protection, and it was their seven-year campaign that contributed to government making it mandatory for all letting and managing agents to have client money protection (CMP). Thanks to all safeagents, this is now a legal requirement, meaning landlords’ and tenants’ money is safe.
Following NALS’ rebrand to safeagent and the safeagent campaign achieving its original aim of mandatory CMP, this year’s safeagent Awareness Week moves on. The week highlights to consumers how agents raise standards in the private rented sector, and the service provided to both tenants and landlords, while continuing to celebrate safeagents’ professionalism.
www.safeagents.co.uk will have fresh news, views and content throughout the week, and you can follow @safeagent on twitter for more updates.
Isobel Thomson, safeagent CEO, said:
“This is the first awareness week since we achieved our original aim of mandatory Client Money Protection for all agents. We’ve got a lot to celebrate and this year we will be highlighting the brilliant agents who uphold the highest standards of professionalism protecting landlords and tenants.”
