This year, haart are showing their support for National SAFEagent Awareness Week 2017, taking place from 15th – 19th May 2017. It is a week dedicated to raising awareness to tenants and landlords of the importance of working with an agent who is part of a Client Money Protection (CMP) Scheme. It’s imperative that tenants and landlords know about the risks involved and what measures they can take to avoid them; the primary one being that they always look out for the SAFEagent logo, denoting those agents that are subscribed to a Client Money Protection (CMP) Scheme).
The awareness week is made even more important due to the Government’s announcement in early April in which they announced their intention to make Client Money Protection compulsory for all lettings agents.
Paul Sloan, Operations Director comments: "If you work with a lettings agent that is a member of SAFEagent you can be sure that your money is properly protected. We are proud to be founder members of SAFEagent and work hard with them to fight for legislation that protects our customers from rogue agents. Every year, landlords and tenants lose thousands of pounds to agents that simply disappear with their money. That is why working with a SAFEagent like us is so important."
