As part of the 2004 Housing Act, the statutory Tenancy Deposit Scheme will come into effect in England and Wales and has two main objectives; to safeguard tenancy deposits paid in connection with assured shorthold tenancies and to facilitate the resolution of disputes arising in connection with deposits.

The new legislation means that after 6 April 2007, any monies taken by an agent or landlord will have to be held in a Government approved scheme, following either an insurance based or custodial format as outlined below:

j. An agent or landlord pays an insurance premium to an approved third party and upon receipt of a deposit, will inform the scheme administrator of all the details about the tenancy. Upon completion of tenancy, deposit returned in full or part as agreed with all parties. In case of dispute, third party facilitates a dispute resolution process.

k. An agent or landlord passes deposit to scheme administrator who holds the deposit. Upon completion of tenancy, deposit returned in full or part as agreed with all parties. In case of dispute, third party facilitates a dispute resolution process.
If anyone should have any queries or concerns regarding the new Tenancy Deposit Scheme, feel free to contact us ? there is no obligation to let or rent through us and we will be happy to help if we can.

Before we visit your home to provide you with a market appraisal and discuss a marketing strategy, we will carry out comprehensive research into recent sales and identify properties that may compete with your own in the market place.

This will ensure that you receive the right advice at the outset and help to speed up your move.

Home Traders prides itself on the prices we achieve. By assessing the property's features and saleability and by thoroughly and aggressively testing the market we ensure that you get the best price obtainable from the best buyer available.

"There is nothing in life that can't be done a little cheaper and less well"

We will not compromise our service to offer you the cheapest fee.

Our reputation for getting results is based on many years experience in gaining the best possible price for our client's homes, by providing a thorough and effective estate agency service - something we intend to continue doing for many years to come.

We could not do this by skimping on marketing or compromising on staff/development and training.

When you instruct Home Traders to act as your Estate Agent, you receive the full benefits of the many years of investment we have already made.
