You wouldn’t use an unlicensed electrician, so why would you use an unlicensed letting agent?

Each year, unlicensed agents in the UK cost tenant and landlords thousands of pounds through a lack of protective measures in place. Licensed ARLA members like Beresford Ward are experienced property professionals, offering informed advice.

  • That your money is protected by a Client Money Protection Scheme.

Without the knowledge and expertise of a licensed ARLA agent, whether you are a landlord or a tenant you may be misled and even suffer a financial loss as a result.
