Property Redress Scheme guide to lettings
Marketing and advertising a property are part of the fundamental responsibilities of letting agents. This function encompasses a wide range of media and letting agents should be aware of their responsibilities when presenting a property to let.
This section provides a legal background to the duties of a letting agent and the consequences of any breach of regulations. It also covers best practices for agents when advertising properties to let and carrying out viewings with potential tenants.
