  • Keeping up to date with compliance

Navigating the complex world of lettings regulations can feel overwhelming, especially for new landlords. From deposit protection to gas safety checks, staying on top of everything can be a full-time job. This is where letting agents can be a valuable asset, helping you avoid non-compliance and its potential consequences.

Compliance headaches, solved:

  • Staying current: Regulations are constantly evolving. A good letting agent keeps abreast of the latest changes, ensuring your practices are always compliant. You won’t miss crucial updates or risk hefty fines.
  • Paperwork perfection: From tenancy agreements to Right to Rent checks, accurate paperwork is essential. Agents have the expertise to create and handle all necessary documents, saving you time and ensuring everything is legally sound.
  • Safety assured: From gas certificates to electrical inspections, keeping your property safe is paramount. Agents manage these checks proactively, preventing potential hazards and legal repercussions.
  • Deposit drama avoided: Deposit protection schemes have strict rules. Agents handle deposits securely and adhere to all regulations, reducing disputes and protecting both you and your tenants.

Beyond compliance, the agent advantage:

  • Tenant screening: Finding the right tenant is crucial. Agents have the experience and tools to vet potential tenants thoroughly, minimizing the risk of rent arrears and property damage.
  • Rent collection made easy: Say goodbye to chasing rent payments. Agents streamline rent collection, ensuring timely payments and reducing stress.
  • Maintenance matters: Dealing with repairs and maintenance can be time-consuming. Agents have established relationships with reliable contractors, resolving issues quickly and efficiently.
  • Dispute resolution: From noise complaints to deposit deductions, disputes can arise. Agents have the experience and knowledge to negotiate resolutions fairly and protect your interests.

Choosing the right agent:

Not all agents are created equal. Here’s what to look for:

  • Accreditation: Seek agents accredited by reputable bodies like ARLA Propertymark or NAEA Propertymark, ensuring professionalism and adherence to ethical standards. Need help or advice contact us today on 01273 724000 or click here.
  • Clear fees: Understand their fee structure and ensure it aligns with your budget and expectations.
  • Transparency and communication: Choose an agent who communicates openly and keeps you informed throughout the process.
  • Reviews and recommendations: Talk to other landlords, read online reviews, and choose an agent with a proven track record of success.


Using a letting agent doesn’t absolve you of all responsibility. Stay informed about your legal obligations and understand the agent’s scope of responsibility outlined in your agreement.

By partnering with a reputable letting agent, you can navigate the lettings landscape with confidence, knowing you’re compliant, protected, and free to focus on the bigger picture. It’s an investment that can save you time, money, and stress in the long run.

Harringtons have been incredibly helpful and supportive of us as new renters and they have been super efficient in getting all of the documents sent through and signed in such a short period of time. Thank you!

we chose this letting agents as they chose a good bills company that is much cheaper than other agents. When viewing houses the staff were very friendly and have been very helpful in answering our questions and making the process as easy as possible.

Although I have only been renting with Harringtons for a short period of time, I have had nothing but a positive experience. From viewing to admin updates. The admin team especially are very polite and quick to respond and I have no doubt that the rest of my tenancy will run smoothly. I would recommend to anyone considering renting in brighton.

Professional communication with tenant although entirely impersonal. There was a bigger disconnect in their communication with the landlord in most cases, which seemed to be either slow or non-existent (discovered after contacting the landlord directly).Property was full of spider webs on day 1 despite apparently being professionally cleaned. Took a day off of work to clean it on move out day, leaving it cleaner than when it received but still had to pay part of the deposit for professional cleaning.It has been a while since I have rented, but I'll avoid letting agencies completely now if this is anything close to the average renting experience.

I have rented with Harringtons Lettings before and have always found the agents to be quick, efficient, friendly and helpful. I loved their service so much I have chosen to rent with Harringtons again. Faultless 😊
