How to find the best lettings agency

I want to find a lettings agency I can trust. The last one did nothing and the house was left in poor repair. I didn't claim back any of the deposit because I am too scared to upset the renters I used last time to look after my house. Is there a way to find out who are the most reputable rental agencies so this does not happen again?

  • The simple answer is to stick to one of the bigger corporate agents, like Sequence or similar. They are heavily governed and under scrutiny by ARLA and several other compliance bodies, so they are always seen to 'do the right thing' for landlords and tenants. Independent agents can be a law onto themselves, and often even personaly own some of the property they are advertising. It is worth considering that cheaper is not always best from a fees perspective.
