The value of Rent and Legal Protection for your customers.

So many people in the Lettings world dismiss Rent and Legal Protection (RLP) as another ‘insurance’ that customers can do without. To be completely honest with you, when I let a property for a friend or member of my family, there’s no way in the world I let them do it without RLP.

Admittedly, I’ve been in the business a long time, but I’ve seen so many examples of good tenants falling into significant arrears over the years causing stress and hardship to landlords. The most frustrating thing is that it’s completely unnecessary. The best agents I’ve every worked with routinely (strongly) recommend RLP. By doing so they understand that they are looking after their customer and protecting their income at the same time.

One final thought: If a tenant that you have introduced falls into arrears and your landlord has to go to court to evict them at great expense, it’s logical that they might think twice before instruction you the let their property again. With RLP, the landlord is much more relaxed and you will almost certainly get the relet!
