Why Instruct Compass Letting and Property Management Services?
The Property Ombudsman - The Property Ombudsman provides a free, fair and independent service for dealing with unresolved disputes between sales and letting agents who have joined the TPO and consumers who are actual or potential buyers or sellers or landlords or tenants of residential property in the UK.
TDS - Tenancy Deposit Scheme - The Dispute Service is an independent, not-for-profit, company established in 2003 to resolve tenancy deposit disputes in the private rented sector.
Having the appropriate marketing strategy in place from the outset is key. Compass offer clients an excellent online marketing presence, as well as frequent print advertising in local press and direct marketing initiatives when appropriate.
