Some good news for landlords and tenants today as the government announced measures to make client money protection mandatory for all agents. has maintained for a long time that all agents holding client money should have protection measure in place.

As a member of ARLA Propertymark and SafeAgent The Good Estate Agent provides the highest level of protection for their customers. Now at last rogue agents will be weeded out and the industry will be a better place for it.

It is not clear when this will come into force but in the meantime all landlords and tenants are recommended to use an ARLA member when letting a property.
