YORKSHIRE'S biggest residential letting specialists have warned that new rules designed to protect millions of tenants and landlords from rogue agents do not go far enough

As part of the Enterprise Bill, the Government plans to make it mandatory for all agents to become members of an ombudsman scheme, giving their customers access to independent redress in the event of a complaint.

But Will Linley, Director of Linley & Simpson, which has a network of nine branches across West and North Yorkshire, said it fell short of the long-awaited compulsory regulation that would have brought the sector in line with its estate agency counterparts.
