With online selling platforms such as Gumtree, eBay, Facebook to name a few, it offers the possibility for anyone to sell anything they want. From simple items such as phones, tablets, to even expensive watches, cars and renting properties!
Unfortunately sometimes this can cause many problems, especially when it comes to online scams!
We have read an article recently in the Leicester Mercury where a mother was trying to find a property to rent for her son and instead, she got scammed and lost her deposit money!
This is not the first time we have heard of such occurrences at Seths, where a house or flat is advertised to LET on these platforms by individuals, who in turn after taking the deposit, run away.
With the world going online, we sometimes place too much trust online and don’t perhaps take the same persuasions as we normally would. It’s easy to do this, online is much easier and quicker!
However, when it comes to finding a home to rent, it is recommended that you use a Professional Agent. At Seths all our properties are fully maintained, they also meet all the regulatory requirements to ensure your safety and we also offer Client Money Protection to both landlords and tenants to ensure that your money is safe at all times!
We also make sure all deposits are protected; you would be surprised how many tenants we still come across who have lost their deposits from rogue landlords, and are oblivious to the fact all deposits MUST be protected.
At Seths we meet all the regulatory requirements and we also know the property market in Leicester really well. For the last 48 years, we have found many properties for tenants and we can do the same for you! View our latest properties for LET by clicking here.
