Lettings agents and property managers: redress schemes
It's a legal requirement for all lettings agents and property managers in England to join one of these three Government-approved schemes.
Purpose of the schemes
To allow you to complain to an independent person about the service you've received if you're:
- a tenant or landlord with agents in the private rented sector
- a leaseholder or freeholder dealing with property managers in the residential sector
Ultimately the requirement to belong to a redress scheme will help weed out bad agents and property managers and drive up standards.
Enforcement by the council
We can impose a penalty of up to £5,000 where an agent or property manager should have joined a scheme but has not done so.
