Martin Jackson & Sally Lawson

Martin Jackson (FARLA) meets Sally Lawson the new President of ARLA Propertymark and CEO of Property Agents Circle


“I can honestly say, the day was fantastic and no matter how long you have been in the industry (20 years), there is always scope to learn more things”.


Martin has enrolled for the 4 days’ workshop later on this year and we will update you all with the feedback from those dates.


“Letting agents these days have to be so up-to-date with current legislation and laws – there is an awful lot we do”:


  • Detailed Tenant Vetting
  • Smoke Alarms
  • Notices
  • Housing Act
  • Contract Law
  • Eviction Process
  • Right To Rent
  • Immigration Checks
  • Deposit Protection
  • EPC’s
  • Gas Safety
  • PAT Testing
  • Property Maintenance
  • Client Accounting
  • Insurances


….the list goes on and on



Not everybody realises the intricate nature of the job and the amount a letting agent has to do prior to a tenancy commencing. It’s not just about putting a property on Rightmove / Zoopla and job done – that is not even 5% of what goes into creating a successful tenancy keeping both Landlord and Tenant happy throughout the process.


A competent letting agent will be up-to-date with all legislation and HAS to know their local market.


We at Patricia Shepherd pride ourselves on being the Lettings Experts and our google reviews reflect this.


If you are a landlord with a single property and a large portfolio – why not call the Lettings Specialist Team at Patricia Shepherd.


You will not regret it!
