Best Letting Agents Liverpool

There are many letting agents in Liverpool and indeed across the counties of Merseyside and Wirral. What you have to do, is work out which is the best for you. This may be where the letting agents are based, or the level of fees.

The first question I would ask is:

"Are you a member of the United Kingdom Association of Letting Agents (UKALA), or the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA)?"

Letting agents that are members of these two organisations have to adhere to an industry standard and as such should provide you with reassurance in a crowded marketplace.

Property Redress

All letting agents must be members of a redress scheme, such as the Property Redress Scheme (PRS) or the Property Ombudsman

Client Money Protection

Additionally, all letting agents must have client money protection and a standalone client bank account, completely separate from their business account.

Deposit Protection

Letting agents must protect tenant deposit in a government recognised scheme, such as the Deposit Protection Service (DPS) or the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS)

Letting a Property

Letting a decent property is not difficult and many buy to let property investors choose to do it themselves. However, others choose to use a letting agent for convenience, compliance, and an easier life. Property management is not without hassle, though we have many properties where we neither hear from the tenant nor the property owner for years, meeting on inspections or visits.

Letting Agent Fees Liverpool

A huge factor is the level of fees some letting agents in Liverpool charge. Some are eye-watering and it's hard to justify them. Many are not, and I would seek out those whose fees you think are reasonable, as at the end of the day, the cash is going from your account to theirs.
