Harefield Gazette - - UXBRIDGE PROPERTY -

THE news is of­ten filled with sto­ries of rogue let­ting agents. So as a land­lord, how do you avoid th­ese un­scrupu­lous in­di­vid­u­als and find a rep­utable let­tings agency who will work with hon­esty and in­tegrity?

The easy an­swer is that you use an ARLA mem­ber.The As­so­ci­a­tion of Res­i­den­tial Let­ting Agents, com­monly known as ARLA, is a pro­fes­sional mem­ber­ship and reg­u­la­tory body for let­ting agents and let­ting agen­cies in the UK. Since 1981, ARLA has ac­tively pro­moted the high­est stan­dards across ev­ery as­pect of res­i­den­tial let­tings and man­age­ment in the Pri­vate Rented Sec­tor (PRS).

ARLA’s role is to make sure con­sumers re­ceive a pro­fes­sional and trans­par­ent ser­vice from its li­censed agents.

Or­chard Property Ser­vices is a proud mem­ber of ARLA, which means when you in­vite us into your home, you can trust the pro­fes­sional ad­vice and guidance that you will re­ceive. In ad­di­tion to this, Or­chard as an ARLA mem­ber, of­fers fur­ther ben­e­fits to its land­lords in­clud­ing:

Hav­ing a client money pro­tec­tion scheme in place to pro­tect all ten­ant and land­lord money

Hav­ing an an­nual in­de­pen­dent au­dit

Pro­fes­sional in­dem­nity in­sur­ance in place

Mem­ber of the Property Om­buds­man

Abides by a strict code of prac­tice.

ARLA leads the in­dus­try in set­ting and reg­u­lat­ing the high­est stan­dards in the property sec­tor and de­mands cer­tain lev­els of pro­fes­sion­al­ism and com­mit­ment to cus­tomer ser­vice from its mem­ber­ship.
