Today we heard the news we’ve been waiting for. Government has said it intends to make Client Money Protection mandatory for all letting agents. Glynis Frew, Acting Chair of the SAFEagent Steering Group, responds:
“We did it! For all of those SAFEagents who have carried the banner for consumer protection – the Government has finally taken on board our call for all agents to be part of a Client Money Protection Scheme.
“The SAFEagent campaign, administered by NALS, will continue until the mandatory requirement is introduced and we will continue to tell tenants and landlords they should only use an agent who is part of a CMP scheme.
