Benefits of using an ARLA Licensed Agent

As well as being a firm of independent property management and letting agents, Leek & Weston are Licensed Members of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA)


Why choose an ARLA Licensed Agent?

You may not be aware that at present there is no compulsory regulation within the lettings industry, which means that anybody can call themselves a ‘letting agent’ and offer to let and manage your property with no previous experience, let alone professional qualifications.

This means many agents have no formal training and don't have to comply with any code of conduct, nor do they have any insurance to protect their clients. So when it comes to letting your property, why take a risk by using an unregulated letting agent?

Your money is safe

Letting agents handle substantial amounts of landlords' and tenants' money by way of rents, deposits, repair budgets etc., so you need to know that your money is safe.

Leek & Weston hold all client money in a ring-fenced client account, and has the benefit of an ARLA Client Money Protection Scheme.

All our accounts must be audited every year to ensure all our clients’ money is fully protected.

Professional Indemnity Insurance

To protect you, and for your peace of mind, we have professional indemnity insurance.

Impartial and expert advice

As Landlord and Tenant legislation is continually changing, Leek & Weston endeavour to keep abreast of any changes so that we can keep our clients informed, updated and protected. We are also here to deal with day to day issues that arise during a tenancy. We use reliable, competent trades people.
