Landlord Accreditation Wales, the principality's private rent sector scheme for landlords and agents, has announced that the Cardiff based CPS Homes lettings agency is the first Association of Residential Letting Agent (ARLA) member to fully join the scheme in Cardiff.
Membership of Landlord Accreditation Wales provides local lettings agents, landlords and tenants with a best practice guarantee. However, in order to quality for accreditation, agents must already be a member of a recongised agent organisation. As CPS Cardiff is ARLA-accredited, the firm already complies with a clearly defined code of Government-endorsed standards.
Cllr Judith Woodman, Executive Member for Communities, Housing and Social Justice at Cardiff Council, sad; "I am delighted that CPS Homes has joined the Landlord Accreditation Wales Scheme. The company's participation in the scheme clearly demonstrates its dedication to continually raising standards in the Welsh lettings sector. The scheme is a great way of safeguarding all those involved in the letting process and with the additional credibility of the ARLA kitemark, there's no doubt that CPS Homes will continue to inspire customer confidence."
For CPS the LAW scheme has specifically offered the chance to send their staff on an intensive course to increase their knowledge in residential property lettings and management. This means that their staff are better equipped to advise their clients in a variety of situations. CPS picked the LAW scheme due it's accreditation with the Council and its low cost in relation to other training courses.
