About Able Property Trust
Who are we
When I founded Able Property Trust back in 1997, it was built on my belief that tenants and landlords deserve to deal with a real person (not a faceless agency) who understands their needs and requirements, and will provide an honest, hard-working, transparent service with the highest levels of customer care.
I want tenants to feel as though they have a quality, comfortable home that’s maintained to a high standard, a place they can come home to at the end of the day and relax, safe in the knowledge that the roof over their head is a good one.
Equally, I know that there are some fantastic landlords out there, people who care about their tenants and are committed to renting their properties in an ethical and legal manner. These landlords also deserve transparent fees and a reliable, trustworthy service. I am delighted to work with a great many of these landlords and will keep on fostering links with property owners who share my mission.
What we do
Able Property Trust is a Safe Agent Licensed Nottingham-based property management company offering a wide range of good quality rented accommodation throughout the city of Nottingham and its surrounding areas. In addition, we are members of and regulated by The Property Ombudsman. We have also have DASH Accreditation (see below).
We own a large property portfolio ourselves, so we fully understand the needs and requirements of both individual landlords, large portfolio landlords and tenants alike.
Why we do it
As I mentioned above, I believe in providing an honest, trustworthy and reliable service. That’s something that’s always been important to me.
There’s been a lot of bad press over the years about residential letting agents, but I am determined to show that not all agents in our industry are ‘rogue’. Some of us care and have always done the right thing.
Able Property Trust is a recognised Safe Agent
SAFE – Safe Agent Fully Endorsed – is a mark denoting firms that protect landlords’ and tenants’ money through client money protection schemes.
There are several schemes in the sector operated by ARLA/NAEA, the Law Society, NALS and RICS to which agents voluntarily belong.
Landlords and tenants often make decisions based on cost but it is very important to ensure you ask your agent for details of the organisation they are regulated by and whether or not they are covered by a client money protection scheme. All agents who are part of ARLA/NAEA, the Law Society, NALS and RICS maintain and operate separate designated client accounts where your money is held completely separate from the operating funds of the firm.
If the agent you are using cannot provide you with the assurance of knowing they are covered by a client money protection scheme, the question you need to ask is why not?
