The National Approved Letting Scheme has become the first organisation to welcome the SAFE kitemark inititiative spearheaded by a group of agents.
Under SAFE, agents who have client money protection in place will be able to display the kitemark. Subscriptions are a nominal £10 for promotional purposes.
Caroline Pickering, NALS chair, said: "Those agents who meet the criteria of organisations such as NALS, ARLA and RICS have to pay for compliance.
"It makes complete sense that they should get the added value for money that this single distinctive kitemark will give. Consumers should make their decision on who to place their business with based on the protection that they get, should anything go wrong.
