    Why SAFEagents are proud to be SAFE

    Welcome to the final day of SAFEagent Awareness Week 2017.

    This week, over 3,000 professional lettings agents across the UK united for the annual SAFEagent Awareness Week – highlighting to consumers the importance of choosing a professional agent who is part of a Client Money Protection (CMP) Scheme.

    Client money protection is set to become mandatory, but until it does, landlords' and tenants' rents and unprotected deposits are at risk!

    This is the 6th anniversary of the campaign, which grows and gains momentum every year.

    The week has the objective of reminding consumers that their finances are at risk if their chosen agent does not have client money protection in place.

    Earlier on this week, we reported a case study involving an agent who stole £140K of client money.

    Today, we hear from the agents themselves about why they are proud to be SAFE:

    Here are some of the supportive tweets on twitter from the past week:

    This year's campaign is run with the good news that, in March 2017, the Government announced that it intends to make CMP mandatory for all letting agents.

    Until it does, SAFEagents have your best interests at heart.

    The 2017 campaign will see SAFE once again sponsoring PropertyTribes.com for the duration of SAFEagent Awareness Week.

    Industry supporters include Endsleigh Insurance, DPS, the Property Ombudsman, and TDS.

    The Government has also given its support to SAFEagent Awareness Week since its launch in 2011 and with the SAFEagent logo appearing in their “How to Rent” guide.

    Please join in with the community campaign next week to spread awareness of client money protection.
