When using a lettings company to let and manage one of your most valuable assets, your property, it is a good idea to choose one who is a member of a Client Money Protection (CMP) scheme, so that you can trust your money is in safe hands.
At John German, we follow codes of practice and rules of conduct laid down by professional bodies such as ARLA Property Mark, as well as having Client Money Protection through the RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) providing peace of mind to all our landlord clients and tenants.
The Client Money Protection (CMP) scheme provides compensation to landlords, tenants and other clients should an agent misappropriate their rent, deposit or other client funds.
Tracey Glenn, Lettings Director at John German Estate Agents comments: "It is a sad fact that many lettings agents exist without being part of a CMP scheme in the property industry which unfortunately at times can lead to problems for landlords and tenants when it comes to monies being returned to them. "
"At John German, looking after client money is paramount. We adhere to stringent regulations required by the RICS and ARLA Propertymark and are proud to be a highly regarded and trusted estate agents in the Midlands." Tracey adds.
