Compliance, Accreditation & Memberships
As well as adhering in all the areas which Letting Agents have to comply with we take our responsibilities to both Landlord Clients and Tenant Customers very seriously. TEIGNBRIDGE LETTING COMPANY is a responsible Letting Agent and has carried full Professional Indemnity Insurance since TLC was founded in 1997.
In order to keep up with such a rapidly changing industry, membership of at least one Professional body is vital and TLC joined the newly formed UKALA in November 1997 and has remained a member throughout. As a Professional Body in the Lettings Industry, it has also grown and developed and now offers support, training and a range of resources to its members. The annual renewal of membership requires evidence of compliance with their strict Code of Practice throughout the entire lettings process and in particular with the management of Clients’ Money, which must be held in a separate designated account. The Code also covers our Duty of Care to Clients, Applicants/Tenants and transparency is required in the event of any potential conflict of interest which may arise.
TLC is committed to constantly improving the service to Clients and, whenever possible, attends training sessions and online courses to keep up to date with the ever-changing laws and Regulations.
