Our top tips for checking your agent has Client Money Protection

Similar to losing the value of your car in an accident if you were without insurance, your letting agent not being covered could mean you lose money you’re entitled to. This could happen if your letting agent misappropriates your funds, ‘runs off’ or goes out of business.

It is estimated that 40% of letting agents aren’t protected**. Here’s our tips from ARLA propertymark to check your agent is protecting your money:

  1. Check that your agent is covered at propertymark.co.uk/find-agent
  2. In accordance with the Consumer Rights Act, an agent must display in their office and on their website if they have CMP, and who provides it for them. In the same way, an agent must disclose if they have no CMP cover.
  3. ARLA Propertymark suggests you ask your agent:
  • Are you giving tenants all of the documentation required by law at the start of a tenancy?
  • How can you protect me and my property in this increasingly litigious world?
  • What if the tenant defaults on rent payments and what is your timeline of expectations?
