Training target... the management team at Linley & Simpson has pledged to pass all 75 of its staff through important industry exams.

AT Yorkshire-s biggest residential letting specialists, there is a lot more going on at the moment than the rent.

For a further 15 staff working for Linley & Simpson have just passed industry exams to demonstrate their expertise in letting and property management.

The success comes as the company marks the end of its 12th year in business with a record month for properties let - a further sign of the strength of the market as more people choose to rent rather than buy.

The successful candidates work across Linley & Simpson's network of eight branches in West and North Yorkshire, which includes York, Harrogate, Wetherby, Ilkley, Wakefield and three in Leeds - the city centre, Roundhay and Horsforth.

The training and development of staff has been an important theme to the company's success since it launched 12 years ago. But, according to director Will Linley, it is now more important than ever for letting agents to be trained to the highest possible standards.

Director Will Linley said: "Staff remain our greatest asset and we have set ourselves the challenging target of passing all 75 of them in these exams over the next few years.

"With the proposed licensing of agents and landlords coming ever closer, coupled with a more competitive marketplace, it is more important than ever for staff to be trained to the highest possible standards.

"These exams are an important way of demonstrating that our staff are equipped with the skills and detailed knowledge of the market that is required to meet the needs of our clients, "

The staff all passed the ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) Technical Award in Residential Letting and Property Management, through an 'e-assessment. It covers health and safety; the law; property letting practice; and property management practice.

ARLA's Ruth Lilley said: "Linley & Simpson staff have excelled in passing these awards. The company is a great believer in both professionalism, and training and developing staff, so we are not surprised that 15 candidates have passed in one go.

"The awards are an important step for property professionals towards ensuring the highest standards of proficiency and service for customers."
