We’re delighted to announce that McDonald Property Rentals is part of the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA), the largest professional body for letting agents in the UK. ARLA exists to improve standards for lettings agents and protect customers. This industry is unregulated, and anyone can set up a lettings agency. The best way to protect your property investment is to choose an ARLA accredited lettings agent like McDonald Property Rentals.
Letting a property can seem daunting and is the reason so many people use lettings agents to deal with every aspect of managing a tenancy. When you select an ARLA accredited agency like us, you know that we’re working to the highest standards. ARLA membership isn’t achieved by everyone. To become a member of ARLA, lettings agents must demonstrate that they are experienced and qualified professionals that comply with legal (and changing) requirements.
As part of ARLA, all financial transactions that go through us are protected by Client Money Protection (CMP). Your income will be held in a designated account and protected in the event of the lettings agency entering administration. All lettings agents must have CMP and it is against the law to use an agent that doesn’t provide this.
When you use an ARLA accredited agent like us, we will guarantee that your property and income will be safe and we’ll compensate you if something happens. We have compulsory professional indemnity insurance and when you work with us, you have this too.
You’ll know that you’re working with property experts and will receive professional advice whenever you need it. When you choose us to manage your property, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from working with an agent delivering a service of the highest quality.
