Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

HAR­RO­GATE’S Feather Smailes Scales has be­come the first es­tate agent in the UK to be li­censed un­der a new scheme to help cus­tomers choose qual­i­fied pro­fes­sion­als.

The li­cence was launched at the House of Com­mons by the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Es­tate Agents (NAEA), which aims to pro­tect con­sumers from un­pro­fes­sional agents.

Charles Smailes, part­ner at Feather Smailes Scales and a past pres­i­dent of the NAEA, says: “I be­lieve that ev­ery es­tate agent should be­long to a li­cens­ing scheme, That way con­sumers know, that they are deal­ing with an ex­pe­ri­enced, well-trained pro­fes­sional. It will also stamp out any un­scrupu­lous agents from prac­tis­ing.”
