We are proud to announce that Sawdye & Harris have been awarded Platinum membership of the newly launched Property Agent Rating Scheme (PARS). The scheme has been designed to make the whole process of renting for landlords and tenants as easy and smooth as possible whilst ensuring that all agents are complying with letting regulations. It allows landlords and tenants to easily identify who they can trust to look after their interests. The private rented sector is now the second largest tenure in England so this goes to show just how important this scheme is.
Teignbridge District Council have recently launched a new scheme working with local landlords, landlord associations, letting agents, solicitors, and accountants, the PARS scheme is a means of ensuring that all letting agents and property managers comply with letting related legislation.
Designed to be similar to the familiar ‘food hygiene rating scheme’, Property Agent Rating Scheme (PARS) will see participating agents displaying window stickers and certificates at their premises and ratings on their websites. This will enable landlords and tenants to easily identify who they can trust to look after their interests.
The need for an effective scheme was identified to make the whole process and experience as simple as possible for both landlords and tenants. The importance of having a scheme like PARS is backed by figures showing the private rented sector is now the second largest tenure in England.
