Woods Lettings & Property Management has achieved a Platinum rating in a new initiative by Teignbridge District Council.
Designed to provide reassurance for landlords and tenants, the Teignbridge District Council Property Agent Rating Scheme (PARS) inspects and awards letting agents in its jurisdiction with a rating, based on their standard of service, code of practice and compliance with all letting-related legislation.
Teignbridge DC Housing Officers visit businesses and assess working practices as well as checking websites and providing expertise and training. The checks are comprehensive, all aimed at ensuring that agents meet the PARS minimum Bronze standard.
In the four ratings – Bronze means the agent meets all current letting-related legislation; Silver means the agent also offers good practice; Gold rated agents go the extra mile offering enhanced service; Platinum agents are also members of a regulatory body, such as ARLA.
Woods, with a portfolio of hundreds of properties, achieved a Platinum rating.
Lettings manager, Angie Richards, said, “We very much welcome PARS, we’re very proud to have been awarded a Platinum rating in the scheme. By using a PARS highly rated agent, landlords and tenants in Teignbridge can be reassured that their asset/home is being appropriately and professionally managed.”
