At scottfraser Investments we have our finger firmly on the pulse of the Oxford investment market.
Our Investment Search and Acquisition Service is tailored to the needs of landlords who lack the time, experience or desire to commit to researching the market and undertaking the necessary legwork for viewing properties.
John Gebbels, Property Investment Manager, brings a decade of experience both in Oxford and Central London, and specialises in sourcing and securing prime buy-to-let property.
The Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) was formed in 1981 in response to the high level of growth in this specialised sector of the property market and the realisation that a separate organisation was required to act as the professional and regulatory body for UK Letting Agents and promote a consistency of standards in the sector. We are proud to be a member of ARLA.
As a full member of ARLA (under the umbrella of the NFOPP), we are governed by the Principles of Professional Conduct that provide a framework of ethical and professional standards that exceed any current legislation.
All client and tenant monies are kept in a designated client account and are covered by the ARLA bonding scheme, thus ensuring protection from the misappropriation of money belonging to a landlord or tenant.
We have a full Professional Indemnity Insurance which covers us for loss or damage to the landlord and/or tenant caused by human error or negligence on the part of our staff or management which results in a claim for compensation for financial loss or damage relating to the tenancy.
ARLA is seen as a benchmark for professionalism in which landlords and tenants can have confidence and, as such, provides a unique marketing advantage.
Please refer to the ARLA website www.arla.co.uk for additional information.
In addition scottfraser is a registered SAFEagent. SAFE – Safe Agent Fully Endorsed – is a mark denoting firms that protect landlords and tenants money through a client money protection scheme. Full details of the scope of the scheme can be obtained from the scheme operator.
