Agents Should Help Eradicate Rogues

Em Morley - October 9, 2012

Letting agents should be doing more to help to eradicate rogue landlords, according to a leading industry figure.

Deputy Director of Private Housing at Communities and Local Government, Sally Randall, said that more agents should not accept properties that are kept in a substandard condition.

Randall also said that letting agents should consider joining SAFE Agent and make consumers aware that it is imperative of choosing a reputable property provider.

She also challenged agents to become better at looking after large property portfolios, as buy-to-let schemes continue to rise.

Randall was speaking at the National Annual Letting Scheme conference.
