SAFE – 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, the Law Society, NALS, RICS and UKALA 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. They are completely independent from the letting agent and they don’t act on behalf of, or have a duty of care to the participating firm. The scope of their CMP schemes varies and you can contact your agent to find out which scheme they are part of.
