Did You know?…….
Many are surprised to learn that even in this day and age, anyone can set up a residential lettings agency.
Agents are currently not regulated by the Government though many, like Sheldon Bosley, do have qualified staff and are members of organisations that require them to follow a strict code of practice.
The general public are unaware of this in many cases and as such, there is a lot of campaigning underway from various people expressing that this should become a legal requirement.
It is strongly believed that blanket regulation would reduce the number of rogue landlords and agents alike. Therefore regulation seems a reasonable solution. Will our new fully Conservative Government make the sensible changes?
