If you are a landlord, you need professional service and the confidence that your agent will manage your investment in your best interests. As a tenant, you need the reassurance that maintenance issues will be dealt with promptly and your tenancy will run smoothly.

ARLA Propertymark Protected agents help landlords to find the right tenants, and tenants to enjoy their treasured homes. Make sure your letting agent is offering you Propertymark Protection.
