MP’s have been told that the public are confused as to why letting agents are not regulated, when sales agents are!
Mark Pawsey, Conservative MP for Rugby, said it was one of the most compelling pieces of evidence considered by the CLG Select Committee reporting into the private rented sector. Pawsey, along with chairman Clive Betts, presented the report to the commons.
William Taylor of Martin & Co Huddersfield (Letting Agent Huddersfield, Property Management Huddersfield and Estate Agent Huddersfield) joined the debate saying “I couldn’t agree with the public more. Myself and the team at Martin & Co Huddersfield all feel education, training and standards is important. We have taken our own steps to educate our staff to a high professional standard, we would genuinely welcome any official regulation or level of service etc. The rogues need to be removed from our industry before it is too late.”
