Client Money Protection (CMP)

About Choice Lettings Watford client money protection

From 1st April 2019 Letting Agents in England are required by law to belong to an approved Client Money Protection Scheme to protect Landlord and Tenant money.  It offers financial protection for Landlords and Tenants, ensuring that their money is secure whilst in the custody and control of an Agent.  The Client Money Protection Legislation helps to continually support and raise standards within the property industry.

In the event that monies are misappropriated by an Agent, in the course of running their business, Client Money Protection helps to return monies to the affected parties (Landlord and/or Tenants).

Safe Agent - Choice Lettings Watford Membership No. A6535

From 27 May 2015, under the requirements set out in the Consumer Rights Act, it became compulsory for all Agents to display in their offices and on their websites whether or not they are part of a Client Money Protection Scheme.

Safe Agent Fully Endorsed – is a mark denoting firms that protect Landlords and Tenants money through Client Money Protection Schemes.

There are several schemes in the sector operated by ARLA/NAEA, the Law Society, UKALA, NALS and RICS to which Agents voluntarily belong. These schemes are run by recognised industry bodies or organisations operating in the private rented sector to provide accreditation and/or regulation. For the benefit of consumers these organisations require their firms/members to have: -

  • professional indemnity insurance
  • defined accounting standards relating to clients’ money
  • a customer complaints procedure
  • membership of an ombudsman scheme

For the benefit of consumers the Safe Agent campaign restricts registration to Agents who are part of such organisations as these Agents meet the stringent standards expected. Landlords and Tenants are encouraged to go on-line and check out www.safeagents.co.uk to find an Agent in their area and the advice is to always look for the Safe Agent mark, an easily identifiable consumer mark denoting Agents subscribed to a Client Money Protection.
