Ultimately the responsibility on any letting agent is ensure their landlord and the landlords property meets the current standards which currently amount to over 150 pieces of legislation. We take this responsibility very seriously as any error can result in heavy fines and even criminal prosecution. Unlike a number of other agents, we focus entirely on Residential lettings, in the words of one of my favourite authors Bill Hybels ‘Do one thing and do it well’. We strive to set the highest standards and best practice within the industry and to this end we have been members of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (A.R.L.A) for over 17 years. Governed by their strict code of conduct we can provide every one of our clients the assurance that our practices are transparent and fair. Furthermore. we are one of the few companies able to offer our clients Client Money Protection (CMP). This is an insurance backed scheme that protects 100% of our clients’ money. Every one of the company Directors are actively involved in the church and their local communities, two of which are Baptist ministers. We also actively support overseas projects in Uganda, Rawanda and the Kongo. In 2008 all of the company profits were used to purchase 22 acres of land in Rawanda which now houses almost 52 Babies and young children with HIV and runs a primary school teaching another 230 children. If you want to know more about this project please click this link http://www.cherishuganda.org/ It is no surprise therefore that at the cornerstone of everything we do is integrity. To provide our clients with a fair and honest service and above all to admit when we are wrong, after all, we are human. This no-nonsense approach has meant our clients remain loyal and value the service and advice they receive year after year. Whether you are a landlord with a single property or a portfolio we can assure you your business is equally as important to us. Colin Roe Managing Director LET it
